Pope Sans Parrot On Cover Of The Rolling Stone

The Pope’s new bird, Amore, called him Papa today.  If the Pope had announced in this week’s Rolling Stone that he was in love with Amore, a green parrot, who would I be to judge him or his new partner?  I would miss the peace doves, but as animal rights people said, releasing doves in St. Peter’s Square is probably not a safety first idea–domesticated doves can’t survive the vicious infighting of Vatican City or of greater Rome.  So green parrot love is OK with me.

P.S. 1/31/14 According to Time.com the parrot belongs to a porn star named Lombardi.
