Defending The Pope
February 23, 1996
To the Editors:
I'm so happy whenever anyone speaks up in defense of the Pope and against critics or disrespectful types. Like the Pope, I too have renounced sex, in fact, I do not admit to ever having had sex; I prefer to dress in unusual and colorful clothing with pointy hats and, of course, I am infallible, when I choose to be infallible.
As the Pope knows, guys like him and me take a few hits from skeptics once in a while and it's nice to have people stand up for us. Thanks once again to everyone who understands.
Most sincerely yours,
Carlo Angelo Piccio, from the Philippines, apparently not realizing this piece is satirical humor, responds:
In response to the e-mail sent by Gerry Dantone, FUCK YOU!!! How do you fucking expect the human race to grow without having sex??? And how do you say it's BAD????? That's stupid. Sex is a natural thing for humans.
