Pope Benedict XVI wrote everything longhand, the way God intended.
Now, word is leaking out that Pope Francis …
I can’t even say it. I’ll let the report speak for me:
In a fast-paced, globalized world in which billions send emails, share photos on smartphones and get their instant news online, the newly elected pope still uses a typewriter for work. On his time off, he follows the games of his favorite soccer club on the radio.
Yes, a typewriter! And a radio!
This is just a monstrous concession to modernity, and something directly condemned in the syllabus of errors. (Well, maybe not “directly,” but it’s there if you squint and then hit yourself in the head with a Zip drive.)
If these trends continue, the next pope might just use a Commodore 64. Once a pope starts using a Newton, it’s game over, man.
Because we all know what comes after that:
