Pope announces that “even nuns” watch porn

It’s like Pope Francis just has a quota of weird stuff he needs to say every once in a while.

The leader of the Roman Catholic Church has made an important announcement: even nuns watch porn.

In response to a question during a Vatican sessions about how social media should be best used in order to “share the joy of being Christians” across the world, Pope Francis jumped straight to pornography, as anyone would. He warned those in attendance that porn is “a vice that so many people have… even priests and nuns”.

“The devil enters from there,” the Pope told priests and seminarians, “The pure heart, the one that Jesus receives every day, cannot receive this pornographic information,” he said.

He urged everyone to “delete [porn] from your phone, so you will not have temptation in hand”. I’m not vaguely interested to know where the Pope thinks people access and store porn- is he aware that you can’t “delete” a website?

The Pope also previously argued that “normal” porn should be declared a “threat to public health”. Pope Francis will not be approving of OnlySaints anytime soon.

The Pope’s response to a question about social media is giving the same energy as when you’re in your Leaving Cert oral exam and you get asked a question that you don’t fully understand the question and go on your own unhinged tangent.
