The Pope Wants You To Give Up Trolling For Lent

The pope made his appeal to tone things down while speaking to tens of thousands of people in St. Peter’s Square for his general audience on Ash Wednesday, the start of the 40-day season that leads up to Easter.

Lent, he said in partially improvised remarks, “is a time to give up useless words, gossip, rumors, tittle-tattle and speak to God on a first name basis,” he said.

“We live in an atmosphere polluted by too much verbal violence, too many offensive and harmful words, which are amplified by the internet,” he said. “Today, people insult each other as if they were saying ‘Good Day.’”

Francis, with all due respect to you and the man up top, I've got some bad news for you. Trolling ain't going nowhere. It's here to stay. Some would even argue trolling is at an all time high thanks to one man: VIN DOG.
