(RNS) A new “Joke with the Pope” digital campaign encourages people to “donate” a joke to support one of three causes ahead of Pope Francis’ historic U.S. visit.

  • The Pope is being treated as a lovable clown.

    I’m glad people see him as a clown.
    But I’m offended he is thought of as ‘lovable’.

    Pope Francis is continuing the disgusting practices of his predecessors – protecting people like Cardinal Bernard Law, the kingpin of the Boston Priest Pedophile Network in a fancy suite at the Vatican.

    The pope is using the Vatican’s status as a State unto itself
    to keep PEDOPHILES from international law and justice.
    Horrible for victims and completely immoral.

  • Mr. Max,

    You obviously don’t know what Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and Pope Francis have done to make the world and the Church a safer place. Read the facts please before you make something up and post it on the internet.

  • @Father Edward,

    “You obviously don’t know…”

    Wrong. I know too well!
    25,000 cases of child rape by priests – and those are only the ones we know about in the United States.

    Yet the kingpin of the Boston Priest Pedophile Rape Network, Bernie Law – remains at large. And the Pope won’t surrender him to face charges.

    Injustice and depravity across board. That is what I know about.
