Aliens are loved by Jesus too: Vatican says all intelligent life welcome 50

It’s nice to know that if we were to ever go to space that the Vatican would consider us covered by God’s almighty power – they’ve just announced they won’t rule out life in all its forms from following the Lord’s teachings.

In a slightly bizarre statement, Argentinean Jesuit Father José Gabriel Funes, head of the Vatican’s astronomy program, has said that another Jesus from outer space in unimaginable.

This is on the back of NASA’s recent discovery of a planet outside our solar system that is very similar to Earth.

If we have humans, and this other Earth could also have humans, would they have their own God or Jesus? To answer that burning question, Father Funes said, “The discovery of intelligent life does not mean there’s another Jesus. The incarnation of the son of God is a unique event in the history of humanity, of the universe”.

He ruled out excluding any other intelligent beings from his faith, saying, “we can’t put limits on God’s creative freedom”.

“To say it as St. Francis [of Assisi], if we consider some earthly creatures as ‘brother’ and ‘sister,’ why couldn’t we also talk of an ‘extraterrestrial brother’? He would also belong to creation”.

Pope Francis even said he would be open to alien followers: “If, for example, tomorrow an expedition of Martians came, and some of them came to us, here… Martians, right? Green, with that long nose and big ears, just like children paint them… And one says, ‘But I want to be baptised!’ What would happen?”

“When the Lord shows us the way, who are we to say, ‘No, Lord, it is not prudent! No, let’s do it this way’,”

Vatican astronomer Guy Consolmagno said in 2010 that aliens who seek baptism should receive it from the church, because “any entity – no matter how many tentacles it has – has a soul”.

Tell us, do you think aliens should be able to join the Catholic church if they come to planet Earth? Or should they find their own God?

  1. Nope, The Vactican should have listened to Q&A last night, we have millions of species besides our own, but we can’t understand what they are communicating, what would make the Vatican think that we would ever be able to communicate with a species not of our world ? If they are advanced enough to come to Earth, then they probably got rid of the idea of mythical beings being in charge millions of years ago

  2. Wow! Ready to accept Aliens! Well instead of treating some of their flock like Aliens,Wouldn’t it be nice if they could be so open and accepting of Gays and divorcees participating in communion.

  3. I think those Pedophile Priest have been far more alien in their attitudes to children than most of mere Earthlings or Aliens would ever be. Clean up your own back yard on Earth before you try to convert those on other planets ( who incidently would probably think we were very primitive for believing in mythical Sky Gods )

  4. Mmmmm. Reading that story makes me think the aliens have already landed.

  5. If they are intelligent enough to find their way here, then they would have left religion and the idea of talking to an imaginary friend way back in their history.

  6. Of course, these aliens would have to purge themselves of any notions of same sex marriage, abortion on demand, living together “in sin” without the bonds of holy matrimony and other devilish ideas to be accepted into the Catholic Church. But that’s a small price to pay, isn’t it, after travelling billions of light- years to get here?
