OK, this is disgusting

Some CongressCritter rushed to drink from Pope Francis' water glass after he left.

On the other hand, that's better than all the media rushing to drink from Obama's water glass.  But still - the Pope isn't divine, folks.  The Pope isn't God.  He doesn't give the water any special holiness just because he drank from the glass.

And on top of all that, it's disgusting.

Stop treating the Pope like a deity.  He's just a man.  He's a Bishop; the Bishop of Rome, to be exact.  The water from his glass isn't any holier than the water in my glass, and treating him as if his touch somehow makes water holy goes against the protocols of the Catholic Church.
