Time to come clean
In other news, a Vatican spokesman stated today:
"In fact, it is time to come out of the closet and acknowledge that a great part of the Bible is metaphorical and not at all to be taken literally. Like that ressurection thing. And, well, the whole "God" thing, in fact. The idea that "God" may not in fact exist is perfectly compatible with the Bible, when it is properly interpreted. It is time to put away childish things, surrender the fairy tales, start acting like adults, and acknowledge that we are a multinational in the business of applied ethics and metaphysics. And real estate, of course."
(Ok, so maybe I made this one up. But just wait for it :))
