Pope Francis closed off his visit to Mexico with the ultimate nod of approval to the blending of Catholic teachings with indigenous Mexican spiritual traditions.
Donning a Santa Muerta costume, he climbed to the top of a Mayan pyramid to preside over the sacrifice of a hundred odd captives.

Said one: "I'm sure His Holiness meant well initially, but look at the victims he chose! Drug cartel kingpins, Trump Republicans, telemarketers, Kanye West, Justin Bieber-- when those characters reach the underworld, the gods are really going to be pissed at us!" (Automatically translated by Bing.)
