Seen on the Web: Promote the Sacrament of Reconciliation by serving beverages and snacks.

Editor’s note: It wasn’t clear whether refreshments would be served to those waiting in line, in the confessional, or later, after doing penance. But, consider the possibilities!

Pope Benedict XVI’s hype of new book worthy of Madison Avenue “Mad Men”.


Who would have thought that pope would have the guts to hype his new book as shamelessly as a Madison Avenue advertising maven?

Was the recent condom controversy merely the first phase of a “killer” promotional campaign?

Will any of the pope’s obvious talent ever “rub off” on L’Osservatore Romano (the Vatican Newspaper) … and will the pope now move to exonerate “The Blues Brothers” … “The Simpsons” … Jimmy Carter … and Charlie Sheen?

What will the Muslims think of the pope’s alleged “Exoneration of the Jews”?

Will Muslims now demand that the pope exonerate them?

Could this be some sort of a bold, new, ecumenical initiative?

Will the pope now get his own weekly cable TV series .. or perhaps, a major motion picture? (Think: “The Exoneration of Emily Rose”“The Exonerator”“Wheel of Exoneration”.

Will the pope shortly call “Vatican III”?

Is Benedict XVI really that savvy, or is this part of some mysterious (and much bigger) master plan?
