The night is darkest just before the dawn. And on one dark Thursday night (last night, to be specific), a verified Twitter handle for Pontifical Council for Social Communications tweeted about the Dark Knight:
Many wondered whether the Vatican's security had been breached, but officials explained that it was an "internal" error due to a non-native English speaker with a quick Twitter finger posting the story to the site, which generated an automatic tweet.
Yet the tweet remains on the Council's Twitter feed, which leads to a second explanation conspiracy theory: We have elected a silent guardian, a watchful protector, a pope (who also happens to be Batman!!!).
Proof? Look no further than His Holiness Pope Francis' most recent tweet: "True power is service. The Pope must serve all people, especially the poor, the weak, the vulnerable."
Hmm, cool cool. Sounds like Batman to us.
