    Earth to Religion News Service:

    Note how the volume of posts in your Comments sections has declined by about 95% since you commenced your week-long obsession about the Pope.

    The Pope’s coming to America certainly is news, but it’s not the only religious news going on.

    You don’t need 16 out of 16 articles to be about the Pope in order to cover his visit adequately. It’s overkill and it makes you look silly and easily caricatured.
