The Pope is Infallible… Unless He Says Something on Twitter

Everyone caught the Pope’s first tweet yesterday, right?

Probably wasn’t a smart move to use the words “in touch” in his first tweet…

Anyway, this nugget from the New York Times is just hilarious:

A Vatican official has said that papal Twitter messages, as with everything written by the pope, will be part of the church’s teachings, but that they will not be infallible.

So it might be wrong, but the Church will teach it anyway. (Tell me something I don’t know.)

And someone clear this up for me: When is the Pope infallible? When he speaks about faith and morality?

If so, what happens if he reads one of his tweets? Does the universe explode?

Just trying to figure out #Catholiclogic.
