I must admit I don't follow everything concerning the Vatican, but I thought for sure they had stopped the shameful and embarrassing practice of offering indulgences. Indulgences are "get out of purgatory free" cards given by the Roman church for money, gifts, or in this case, being a twitter follower of the Pope. It was the sale of indulgences that sent Martin Luther over the edge and started the Reformation. These guys in the Vatican are starting to make Benny Hinn look like a reliable character. Pathetic.
Salvation – or at least a shorter stay in Purgatory – might now be only a tweet away with news that Pope Francis is to offer “indulgences” – remissions for temporary punishment – to the faithful who follow him on the social media site.
