Pope Finally Questioning God's Plan
(Rome, Italy). Pope Francis questioned the all-perfect plan that God has for the world today after an hourlong meeting with the elected leader of the free world.
"I don't know," he said from the Sistene Chapel where he was meeting with American President Donald J. Trump. "I mean, I know 'the Lord works in mysterious ways' and all that, but c'mon."
The 266th Leader of the Catholic Church and the 45th President of the United States discussed health care, education, and assistance for immigrants. "That's when I knew we were in trouble, you know?" the Poe said. "It doesn't make any sense. What kind of God would put this guy in charge of so many critical issues? You start to wonder, 'maybe it's all bullshit. Maybe there is no God.' I just...I just don't know."
Later in the meeting, Francis handed Mr. Trump a copy of his encyclical on climate change. "He just stared at me, mouth agape!" the Pope continued. "Just sat there, with a little dribble of spit hanging off his lip. I don't think he can read!"
The Pope is hopeful someday his steadfast faith in the Lord will return. "It'd be a real shame, if it didn't. What with my job and all," he said.
