Vatican censors video of Pope joking whisky is ’the real holy water’

The Vatican has censored a video where Pope Francis was caught proclaiming that Scotch whisky is ’the real holy water’. Francis joked with a group of visiting Scottish student priests who presented him with the bottle. As per reports, the Vatican sought to avoid a controversy by censoring the footage ahead of an upcoming documentary about seminarians at the Scot College in Rome.

Oh no you've gone and done it, what could've been a meme that would've turned kids to Catholicism is now a part of the Streisand effect. When will people learn that any attempt to silence something most often just makes it more noticeable.

is it 2021 yet?

I’m not religious but that is amazing, glad to hear he has a good sense of humor and realizes that the Holy Spirit isn’t the only good spirit!

"The Vatican sought to avoid controversy"... The only controversy that could come up from this is if they decided to go out of their way to cover up or censor a measly joke... Oh wait that's what they just did.

I grew up Catholic, It has many cool things about it. I enjoy the history, certainly it's never been perfect. It's been up and down. The leadership historically on average has never been good. This guy I would not even consider a real pope. It's sad that most Catholics take what they want from the church experience, and just look away at what the leadership does. Mostly they know, but they just want peace, so pretend everything is perfect. The attitude is let everyone burn, as long as I have a good happy time. I like how they make him making a joke about whiskey an issue. Like that's important. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/mar/14/pope-francis-argentina-military-junta Jorge Bergoglio was head of the Jesuit order in the 1970s when the church backed military government and called for patriotism https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/pope-franciss-advocacy-for-islam-could-destroy-europe Pope Francis’s advocacy for Islam could destroy Europe

So in order to avoid a non-troversey, they created a controversy. Maybe the Pope isn't supposed to have a sense of humor? They really should have known better.

The bottle shown in the NYPost source (currently chosen as the image for this story on NewsVoice) is Oban 14. It's one of the most centered according to the map of flavors and it's one of my favourites. I've visited the distillery 2 years ago.
