Homer Simpson marked marijuna found in Mexico

Does this mean the Vatican supports smokin’ a doobie?

From an article published in the official Vatican newspaper, the Osservatore Romano :

“Few people know it, and he does everything to hide it. But it’s true: Homer J. Simpson is Catholic. [The Simpsons is] tender and irreverent, scandalous and ironic, boisterous and profound, philosophical and sometimes even theological, nutty synthesis of pop culture and of the lukewarm and nihilistic American middle class…among the few TV programs for kids in which Christian faith, religion and questions about God are recurrent themes.”

Paired with this little discovery from the CBS News website…

In one of the biggest pot busts in recent years, Mexican authorities seized at least 105 tons of marijuana bound for the U.S. The drugs, seized in predawn raids in Tijuana, have an estimated street value of $340 million. Festooning some of the parcels with an image of Homer Simpson saying, “I’m going to get high, dude!” may appear naive. But considering the Vatican’s newspaper declared Homer Simpson a “true Catholic” over the weekend, perhaps it was more a coded plea for clemency.

TimingD’oh!
