News Headline: “Pope decries ‘scandal’ of hunger amid plenty.”
News Headline: “Pope Francis on gays: ‘Who am I to

News Headline: “Another hazardous asteroid to dart close to Earth in 2065.”

He has not played a TV talker who hawks loon politics and overpriced gold to the gullible.
That role is taken.
