Hallelujah!

The folks at Benetton are back on good terms with the big guy upstairs now that they've settled their dispute with the Vatican.

In case you forgot, Pope Benedict sicked his legal team on Benetton last year over an ad that showed His Holiness kissing Imam Ahmed Mohamed el-Tayeb.

The Pope Gets His Own Holy Fragrance!

pope-benedict-gets-his-own-personal-fragrance.jpg

Pope Benedict XVI is finally getting a fragrance to call his own!

Italian perfumer Silvana Casoli is the nose behind the holy aroma and is meant to reflect his love of forests, animals, peace and tranquility.

While concocting the fragrance, Casoli says she "thought of the smells the Pope would smell when praying at the Grotto of Lourdes" and apparently that includes lemon tree blossom and the smell of spring grass.

Inneresting.

For those wanting to get a whiff of the eau de Pope, you're S.O.L. The unnamed fragrance is for the Pope's nose only.

Thoughts???

Filed under: Icky Icky PooMedia Minute

susan sarandon gets backlash for anti pope comment

This one was bound to piss A LOT of people off.

Yesterday, we reported that Susan Sarandon made a comment at last weekends' Hamptons Film Festival, in which she described the current Pope as being a "Nazi," and then said it AGAIN for emphasis.

Now, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is coming after Susan and asking that she apologize.

Introducing…The iPope! Vatican Gets A Twitter!

Oh man, we wonder what this will mean!

Will all prayers now be in 140 characters or less?! LOLz!

Pope Benedict XVI made history today by not only getting an iPad at age 84, but by using it today to launch the Vatican's new website, News.va, and to TWEET for the first time!

The message read:

"Dear Friends, I just launched News.va Praised be our Lord Jesus Christ! With my prayers and blessings, Benedictus XVI"

Check out a video from the big event (above)!

Glad to see the church is getting internet-savvy!

Here's hoping that they can get a little more savvy about their stance on gay rights!

Hey! Just saying!
