Pokémon Gets Religion

12/09/1997 at 12:00 AM EST

The Vatican has given its blessing to the Pokémon card game, reports the Times of London. The Vatican-based satellite TV station Sat2000, which is run by the Italian Bishops' Conference, declared that the Pokémon trading card and computer game is "full of inventive imagination," has no "harmful moral side effects" and is based on the love-thy-neighbor notion of "intense friendship." Amen. And Happy Easter and Passover.
