Metro Misrepresented the Pope?

hisholiness.png His Pointy-hattedness is coming to town in a couple weeks, and Metro, seeking to repeat the godawfulness that was that insipid peeps video telling people to Metro to Nationals Park, decided to promote Metro for the Mass day. They did it with a Bobblehead version of the Pontiff, but the Archdiocese of Washington asked that they pull it down.

Because the Pope’s cape was the wrong color.

And because the Pope’s hat was wrong.

Now, it sounds like that they did this one right, complete with Car & Pontiff Magazine, and with good Latin chanting, but they got coerced by the protocol nazis.

Oh well.
