The Vatican Wants believe in aliens

Catholic alien
According to the Vatican’s chief astronomer – yeah, apparently they have astronomers – you can believe in God and the existence of aliens, and still go to Heaven.

An interview published in the Vatican newspaper – they have a newspaper too? – not only said that it’s possible that aliens could exist, but even suggested that not believing in aliens would question your faith in God. Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes claimed that doubting the existence of other intelligent life-forms would “place limits” on God’s creative powers.

Wow! How long did it take ‘em to think of that one? With yet another if-you-don’t-believe-this-you’re-not-going-to-Heaven argument, they’ve done it! They’ve appeased all the UFO “nuts”/alien believers/Roswell conspiracy theorists and welcomed them with open long as they understand that ET’s aren’t superior beings. Well, at least not to God.

When asked what alien life would mean for human redemption Funes said, “God was made man in Jesus to save us. In this way, if other intelligent beings existed, it is not said that they would have need of redemption. They could remain in full friendship with their Creator."

So, aliens aren’t superior to God, but they are superior to us. We’re the lost sheep, according to Funes.

Now, what this article is really saying is that we need the church to guide us and keep us in His good books, aliens or no aliens, as it has always been. But the worst part of the article? The cheesy title: “The Extraterrestrial is my Brother.”

But hey, who am I to judge? Catholicism’s just trying to keep up with the times – especially since now it also has Scientology to compete with.

Okay, so it’s not exactly “breaking” news, but it was news to me.
