Al Gore, Pope Spar Over Origins Of The Internet

Al Gore, Pope Spar Over Origins Of The Internet
Pope Francis tries to explain what he meant but Al Gore is having none of it.

DAVOS, Switzerland (CAP) - Former Vice President Al Gore had some choice words for Pope Francis this week following the pontiff's assertion that the Internet is a "gift from God," saying that the Creator in which we're all endowed had little to do with its development.

"Now, I love Pope Francis with his flowy robes and his pointy hat, but the Internet did not just fall from the sky like some ten commandments," Gore told reporters during a session at the World Economic Forum. "I worked tirelessly for years to get that puppy up and running and will not led God take all the credit."

The erstwhile presidential candidate further defined what he described as "the separation between God and Gore," pointing out things for which God is given credit but he says are actually thanks to humans themselves - like hitting the lottery, sports victories and Fridays.

"Let's give credit where credit is due: we'll take the Internet, and God can have global warming," Gore noted. "The polar vortex, the California drought, an ozone layer that takes so damn long to rebuild itself - that's all God.

"God creates the problems, and man invents the solutions," he added. "Not the other way around."

The Pope's statement came on the heels of the creation of his very own Instagram account, to which he posted half a dozen selfies and a picture of his cat on the first day. He followed that up by photobombing no fewer than a dozen tourist pictures at the Basilica.

"In his defense, the Pope thinks everything good comes from God," said CAP News religious expert Don Novello. "Conversely, he recently held an exorcism at a local Billa supermarket to cast the demons out of the price scanner because it kept ringing in his Ramen noodles incorrectly.

"As Lot once said, you gotta take these things with a grain of salt," Novello added. "Or a pillar, as it were."

Meanwhile, Vatican officials have announced that Pope Francis will be live tweeting his next Mass for "Catholics on the go" and will begin accepting Bitcoins for the needy.

    Chinese officials are preparing to launch a group of children into space as part of a mission to fix that country's broken moon rover. "We hand-selected the finest worker from all of China sweatshop," said the Xinhua news agency. "They will restore China intergalactic glory or perhaps die trying." «» Secretary of State John Kerry says he's "stumped" trying to think of a big word to call Israel in retaliation for being labeled "messianic" by their defense minister. "Frankly, I don't even know what that word means," said Kerry. "Funny how they have a better English vocabulary than we do." «» Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admits he once ran through City Hall while holding a pair of scissors after video surfaced showing him doing so. "What else does Toronto have to endure at the hands of this madman?" wrote one local blogger. "I don't even trust him with safety scissors." «» Iran President Hassan Rouhani says he will give United Nations inspectors access to his country's movie theatres in time for the premiere of Catching Fire. "What a radical shift from Ahmadinejad, who wouldn't let anyone watch The Hunger Games," said one UN official. "I hope we get some popcorn, too." «» Explorers combing through a desolate section of the Amazon have uncovered a lost tribe of indigenous peoples whose customs have turned popular theory upside down. "We've run numerous experiments, and it turns out these people actually don't like parades," said one researcher. "Next we're going to try them with pie." «» A new report reveals Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has his fingers crossed every time he says he wants amicable diplomatic relations with the West. "We started getting suspicious when he wouldn't shake anyone's hand," said a source. "So we think his Peaceful Bomb Program may be code for something else." «» Germany is formally asking the United States to stop eavesdropping on conversations and remove the hidden cameras that spy on Chancellor Angela Merkel while she's getting dressed. "Seriously? She's like 75 years old. That's just gross," said one German official. "And the Chancellors Gone Wild website is completely uncalled for." «» China is warning of "catacrysmic repelcussions" if Congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling so America can pay its loans to the motherland. "First we repossess Louisiana Purchase and build lots of factory there," said President Xi Jinping. "Next we tax bejesus out of pork fried rice. Should I go on?" «» Google is planning to bring oat bran, flaxseed and other whole grains to 34 cities as part of its burgeoning Google Fiber project. "Muffins, cereal, breads - we aim to keep America regular," said a spokesperson. "Our country may have an obesity epidemic, but we don't have to poop like it." «» After suggesting that learning a trade is a better career choice than an art history degree, President Obama has offered his apologies by delivering coffee and doughnuts to unemployed art history majors. "Chin up, my jobless friends," he said. "This country needs more baristas who can wax poetic about Rembrandt." «»
