So, my strategy is when I become a cardinal, I will decide what my pope name will be and register it just in case I become pope. I'll probably need to pick a couple alternates in case I don't get elected at the first opportunity. I'll probably need to learn to navigate church politics too. I should also think about seminary (tee hee) school and getting ordained. I should probably become a catholic too. I should probably start about twenty years ago.

If you have a good domain name, you can get 4-5 figures for selling it.  For something as specific as this (and given that it's the Catholic Church, the single richest organization in the modern world*), he might have just gotten a million-dollar payday.

*I'm guessing.

The Vatican is its own country, though. They have their own top level domain, so I imagine is safe. Looking at, they could stand to do some work on their site, but it looks like they now have a Papal app, which is some progress. Insofar as Jesuits enjoy discourse I think the new pope may be keen on expanding engagement online. Although I doubt he'll turn up for an AMA on Reddit any time soon.

Have it on r/atheism and see if he can get -10K karma in one day
