Shameful: Pope Francis I sends first tweet as @Pontifex, attracts ‘Kill yourself’ death wishes and hate

Pope Francis tweeted his first tweet as @Pontifex after his first Angelus this morning.

Pope Francis’ first tweet has over 13,000 retweets and counting.

Sadly, yet predictably, vicious hate started pouring in immediately. Ah, the “tolerance” on display, once again.


Bingo. Of course, Pope Francis loves them and always will. They can’t understand that, what with being consumed by hate and all.
