Pope didn’t tell frog to hop it after all

ArtInfo reports that contrary to many reports in the global press last week, the Pope has not anathematized Kermit. (See Crucified cartoon frog angers Pope).

Apparently the person who wrote the letter brandished by Franz Pahl, the hunger-striking Bolzano politician, isn’t the Pope.  He’s the Vatican State Secretary.  That’s just fine.  100 words per minute and a Masters degree in spotting blasphemy, but no tiara.
