The pope gets a promotion!

According to Gabriele Amorth, chief exorcist of Rome (and who better qualified to judge?), the devil has taken up residence in the Vatican.

To be sure, this will come as no surprise to Reformed believers. However, it represents a significant promotion. At the time the Westminster Confession was promulgated, the Pope was merely the Antichrist. But in the intervening years the Supreme Pontiff has been rewarded for his diligent service to the dark side by moving up a notch to the top slot. As Cardinal Newman might say, the acorn evolved into the oak.
