Don't worry, outer-space brethren, the Pope says he's all set to baptize you

The Fonz of Popes continues to operate jukeboxes with his fist. 

That Pope Francis, man -- he is an all right dude. He eschews the wealthier trappings of being one of the most powerful people on the planet, doesn't bother to curse the gays to damnation, and now this:

If tomorrow, for example, an expedition of Martians arrives and some of them come to us ... and if one of them says: 'Me, I want to be baptised!', what would happen?

And the answer, according to Pope Coolsville, is that we should baptize the @#$% out of those aliens. He doesn't care where those aliens are from, it doesn't matter what they believe or whether they come from the "right" kind of upbringing. This Pope takes on all comers.

I'm not saying this will prevent all intergalactic war ... but this will prevent all interglactic war.

You keep on keepin' on, Pope Awesome I.
