Jack Dorsey, step aside -- you may be Twitter's first registered user (and hey, founder), but in the eyes of the Vatican, Jesus Christ is the original tweeter.

“Christ used tweets before everyone else, with elementary phrases made up of fewer than 45 characters like 'Love one another,'" said Vatican cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi to a group of Italian newspaper editors Wednesday. "A bit like in television today, he delivered a message through a story or a symbol."
Quote from: William Lyon Mackenzie King
There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

Quote from: Drago Musevini's 'Manifesto'
Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Which is a problem. If you are powerless.

Yes, I'm sure Jesus was the first person to use sentences containing 45 characters or less.

Someone should open up a fake Jesus account on Twitter and make this happen.

Those tweets should be all about turning the other cheek, forgiving your enemies and preaching love and peace.

You could even use real bible quotes and some of the fundies would still be furious.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Dear cardinal whatshisface:

Stop this. You're embarrassing yourself. Short phrases, parables, symbols, all these have existed since language was born. Jesus did not invent them and people nowadays know how to use them, Twitter or no Twitter. You might as well tell us about how the stork brings babies from Paris; it's just as much of a lie, just as obviously false, and in the same way, born of a mistaken impression that people younger than you are unable to handle simple concepts.

I know there's this meme that the only way to reach young people is to "speak their language" by framing everything in terms of the latest thing, which nowadays is the twitters and facebooks and such. Whatever the merits of this notion, it has led you astray. You are not the cool cardinal who is in touch with the current generations. You are the condescending fool who thinks people cannot understand a notion as basic as "people speak using short phrases" without a reference to Twitter.


Come to think of it, I retract my first plea. Do not stop this. You're doing exactly what needs to be done.

King Leonidas would like to have a word or two with you. A word or two is all he needed to get his point across.
I'm in science to discover and analyze God's wonderful universe, not gripe about how people don't like God.  I believe the creation/evolution debate is a waste of Christian brains (we have them, believe it or not) that could be better spent on making actual things.

Favorite philosophers (out of the ones I've personally read): Jesus, Solomon, Marcus Aurelius, Immanuel Kant

There are actually a couple "fake" Jesus accounts on Twitter.

One is something like Jesus_H_Christ and does a lot of parody.
