Pope Drops F Bomb Accidentally During SpeechBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - March 5, 2014
The Pope may need to ask for forgiveness from God and everyone else who heard his recent speech. While in the middle of giving the weekly blessing at the Vatican, Pope Francis accidentally dropped the F Bomb.
Pope Francis was trying to say the word “caso,” which means “case” in Italian, but said “cazzo,” which is the Italian equivalent of the F-word instead. As soon as he let the word slip, he knew it was wrong and he tried to correct himself quickly, but it was too late, he had already said it and everyone in the audience heard the mistake.
His actual speech went, “If each one of us does not amass riches only for oneself, but half for the service of others, in this (F bomb) … in this case the providence of God will become visible through this gesture of solidarity.”
A simple and easy to make mistake, but one that will likely haunt the Pope for a while. Especially since many people were recording the speech on their cell phones and have uploaded it onto YouTube and shared it on social networks.
While the mistake may be a funny one, it is a prime example of how normal the Pope really is and shows that even he can make an honest mistake every now and then. If you think the Pope’s accidental F Bomb will hurt his image, think again. Most people will find the humorous accident relatable and it may actually boost Pope Francis’s popularity.
Do you think the Pope is secretly laughing about his mistake or is he deep in prayer, begging for forgiveness?
