Big deal. that pope existing has been responsible for me saying the word millions of times.

He is really courting the Fark demographic

This pope is pretty cool for a pope. He actually preaches the whole Jesus thing and not Republican Jesus thing.

The Pope's message of charity was lost in translation on Sunday, as he accidentally muddled "caso" ("case") with "cazzo" ("fark").

That concludes today's "How To Swear In Italian!" lesson.

I watched that 3 times and didn't hear anything that remotely sounds like f***

Am I deaf?

I think it was actually, "let's fark."

"Cazzo" means "penis."

Nope.  Never said it.  Nor anything close to it.   It was probably some kinda experiment by fark to see how many people have knee-jerk reactions to an article they never saw/read for comprehension so they can relegate said people to the politics tab in the future.

No...just not Italian speaking presumably.   He said the equivalent of fark in Italian apparently.

Didn't click, but if that really happened the cynic in me says there is no way this wasn't staged to "gain the popular vote"

I'm no where near religious as I expect the Pope to be, but over years -with the grace of God- have managed to condition myself not to curse or swear.

What do I know...I'm still walking the path.


/should get points for not using "I digress"
/hope to be liked and respected, but if in a situation where only one is possible, then prefer respect

2014-03-03 12:45:16 PM  
hopefully...  everyone will also hear the sentence the gaffe arrived in:

"If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others... in this case, the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity "

Let me let you in on a secret.  The Pope will read anything that is put on that Teleprompter.  And when I say anything, I mean anything.

Pope Francis made a rare linguistic error during his weekly blessing on Sunday, transforming a harmless Italian word into one of the strongest swearwords in the dictionary.

I didn't hear anyone say "Belgium"

If only the article gave a direct translation of what he said in English.
 
2014-03-03 12:54:10 PM  
He's gonna have to say a few goddman  Hail Marys.
 
2014-03-03 12:57:04 PM  
At least he didn't call anyone a jelly doughnut.

Well, it's a very rude term for penis, and it's used in Italian the way we use "fark" in English.

Dynamic equivalence translation, what's it do?

Is anyone surprised that the Pope can't stop thinking about very rude farking penises?

Wow. He's a real guy. Guess it's time to start believing in the Lord!

Still on pace to be the best pope of my lifetime.

No, you're an anglophone*.

He said "Fark" in Italian. It's really just a matter of mispronouncing a word, for example if you said ""fark" instead of "fork".

*You speaka da Engleesh.

By the by, Papal infallibility applies only when the Pope is speaking ex cathedra, on matters of religious doctrine or presumably law. He has the right to be fallible in human matters or even in religious matters if he is not speaking AS the Church's head and the Vicar of Christ.

And a good thing too since one of his predecessors proudly published a translation of the Bible that was riddled with errors. Judging from the number of toy boys and "nieces" many of the Medieval and Renaissance Popes had, they were extremely fallible in human matters. A lot of Roman Catholics can proudly claim descent from medieval Popes. I am descended from a Roman Catholic bishop or two myself but they married before the Church began to apply and enforce celibacy for bishops and clergy.

Their children were grandfathered, so to speak.

Drat. Now I have "I'm my own grandpa" in my head. Get out! get out, you!

Its actually Francis dressed in a Benedict mask for Halloween.  That wacky Pope!   He does a mean Daft Punk, too.

Well, he's the product of one, at least. Besides, aren't slips of the tongue more or less Church policy?

Well I'm no theologian, but this has got to be the coolest pope they've had for centuries.

Francis is just alright with meeee....
