    Paul Ryan Thrown Out of Easter Mass For Views On Poverty


    Congressman Paul Ryan was thrown out of Easter Mass today at his hometown Catholic Church because of his "unchristian" stance towards the poor.

    A spokesperson for St. John Vianney's church in Janesville, Wis. says it was enforcing a new papal order barring uncharitable politicians from participating in catholic rites when it refused communion to Ryan and asked him to leave the building.

    Ryan reportedly declined to move at first, and was escorted out by several large, male parishioners and taken to his car, where he waited for his wife and children to finish the service.

    In a statement released to the media shortly after the incident Ryan came out swinging against the Church and its anti-poverty views.

    "The Catholic Church believes it is society's responsibility to care for the poor. I believe the poor are invariably lazy and should be left cold and starving until they acquire a decent work ethic. What's the matter? We can't even have a debate about this? Its almost as if this new pope thinks he's infallible or something!"
