The Pope Blesses Harley Davidson Wankery

Pope Francis took some time out of his Poping, (Popping? Poperizing?), to bless a bunch of smelly bikers and their Harleys. It all started when thousands of bikers rode their loud obnoxious motorcycles to St. Peter's Square to hear the Pope conduct a mass. These leather-clad ruffians are apparently devout Catholics. It's the 110th anniversary of the first Harley rolling off the line, so of course the first thing Italian bikers would do is head to the Vatican. Pope Francis, (who is 200% nicer than his predecessor Pope Palpatine I), blessed the bikers and their Harleys. It's a nice sentiment and all but I don't like the message it sends. Does the Church really want to endorse annoying Harley culture?

I'm no expert, but as far as I can tell their are two types of people who ride motorcycles: normal people and Harley ass clowns. Just because you own a Harley doesn't mean you are one of the bad guys. I'm talking about the jerkoffs who plaster the logo on everything they own. The people who eat at the Harley Cafe or name their sons Harley or Davidson. I mean the inconsiderate d-bags that purposefully rev their engines while riding by my window at 6am on a Sunday and wake me up. Or the smelly freaks that you have to avoid hitting on the freeway because they think that they are too cool to stay in the designated lanes. Is this the kind of behavior the Church wants to promote in their followers? It may not be a sin to make all that noise, but it should be. "Thou shalt not rev thy engine loudly to prove you have not a micropenis".
