The Pope in Space
Not content to make the lives of people on this planet miserable, the Vatican has a newfound interest in extraterrestrial life. According to a story in today's AP News in Brief:

So the residents of other planets can now look forward to having all the joy and pleasure drained out of their lives, too. And heaven help them (you should pardon the expression) if any of them are gay or, like a number of earthbound life forms, can change their gender during the course of their lives.
I’d end this with an appropriate wisecrack, but too many come to mind, and they’re all too easy. Blenders?
