Pope meets Satan?

Boxing promoter Don King got a front row seat with Pope Benedict XVI ( means "the 16th") on Wednesday. Much speculation has arose as to what exactly Don King was doing with the pope. Some theologians feel that it is a sign of an impending apocalypse since King is believed by many to be the Anti-Christ. A Yahoo! search of the terms "Don King" and "Satan" will yield close to 8 million hits. And as well all know from collegiate term papers and celebrity slander, if something is on the Internet, then it must be true.

I'd say don't jump to too many conclusions too quickly about Don King. It is possible that he was there to ask forgiveness for the man that he beat to death over owed money or the countless boxers that he has screwed out of millions of dollars over the years. After all he is in his mid-70s and does not have much time left so why not take advantage of the sacrament of reconciliation and all of the beautiful forgiveness that comes with it. King can probably have his personal assistant say most of the Hail Marys for him anyway freeing him up to visit Rome and rob a few blind beggars along the way.
