Reddit Loves Him So Pope Francis Must Be The Devil

Reddit has 58,000 subscribers to the Christianity subreddit. If you combine the total subscribers from the eight major religious subreddits, it comes to 140,000. Compare that to r/atheism’s 1.8 million subscribers and it’s easy to see that the site leans away from organized religion. Combine that with the fact that the Catholic church has been nothing but the butt end of jokes on Reddit since the beginning of the site and it makes the unnatural popularity of Pope Francis that much more shocking. Take a look at 10 of the most popular Pope Francis posts on Reddit the last month and then decide: is he the devil?
