Fake Vatican newspaper pokes fun at Francis, but makes his point

 | 

A fake edition of the Vatican's semi-official newspaper L'Osservatore Romano made the rounds in Rome Friday, declaring in a bolded headline that Pope Francis had (subtext: finally) responded to four cardinals who challenged him last fall with five yes or no questions about how he understands church teaching.

"He responded!" the fake paper exclaims under what looks like an exact copy of L'Osservatore's masthead. "Francis has broken his silence on the dubia of the four cardinals."
