Conspiracy Corner – Petrus Romanus/Francis the First

Every Thursday, about 8:15am, Matthew talks with Ethan and Zac on 95bFM’s “Breakfast Show” about conspiracy theories.

For two weeks running breaking news has prevented Zac, Ethan and meself from talking about a rather interesting development in the world of Abstract Art. Last week it was the death of Hugo Chavez; this week it was the election of Pontifex Maximus Francis I (or, as we like to call him, “End Pope”), the Petrus Romanus of the Vatican legacy.

Yea, verily, Rome has a new bishop and, if you accept the foreboding (and certainly fictitious) claims of the Prophecy of St Malachy, the end times have started.
