    Probably to cover up the losses of his global flop album, The King of Vatican City is now selling three sets of lottery tickets in México, where he is currently visiting.

    This once again demonstrates The Holy Father's commitment to aiding the poor - now instead of spending 500,000 Euros for a sainthood, the disadvantaged can go to heaven with just a ticket, an opportunity they haven't had in half a century.

    Yay or nay?

    The Catholic church has always promoted a lottery. It's called the withdrawl method.

    The withdrawal method is explicitly condemned by The Bible.
