    Congressman swipes Pope Francis’ drinking glass

    When Pope Francis concluded his historic address to Congress on Thursday, dozens of lawmakers followed as he left the podium, hoping to clasp the hand or touch the garments of His Holiness.

    Then there was Rep. Bob Brady (D-Pa.), who instead dashed to the podium to swipe the pope’s drinking glass.

    The half-full glass of water has now become something of a holy relic for the congressman.

    Brady took the glass back to his office, where he drank out of it, and held it up for his wife, Debra, and staff members so they could drink from it as well.

    “How many people do you know that drank out of the same glass as the pope?” he boasted to the Philadelphia Daily News.

    He then poured the water into a bottle so he can sprinkle later it on his four grandchildren and one great-grandchild, he told the Washington Post.

    “Anything the pope touches becomes blessed,” Brady told the paper.

    “I think so and no one is going to change my mind.”

    This isn’t Brady’s first heist.

    The congressman confessed to the newspaper that he also stole the water glass used by President Obama during his first inauguration.

    He didn’t drink out of that one, though. He just put it in his curio cabinet at home, where this one, too, will go.

    First, though, he’ll have Philadelphia police fingerprint it, to document its authenticity, he told the Philly Daily News.

    Brady represents part of Philadelphia and plans to follow the popular pontiff there this weekend.

    I wonder if the Pope had to take a shit while he was visiting Congress ?
    The glass of water would be a joke compared to a Pope turd.

    I could see that too. It's holy water.

    The thing is: you don't drink holy water...

    I chalk this up to this asshole being a politician. If you want to filch the popes glass, drink its contents and save someone to sprinkle over your kids, fine. But don't make a Spectacle out of it for the sole purpose of showing people how much better of a Christian you are so you can swing some more votes out of the religious bloc.

    This isn't a religion thing. This is an asshole politician thing.

    If anything, I would expect him to lose votes over this stunt.

    No shit!

    Doesn't that idiot congressman understand that the pope is just a man like him? This glorification of popes borders on idolatry. That in a nutshell is the biggest difference between Catholicism and "new" Christianity, so much time, money, and effort is wasted worshiping people and symbolism. Where Christians are just encouraged to read their bible, pray, and spread the good news. :pray:
