Pope Francis has said that he would be willing to baptise aliens if they came to the Vatican, asking “who are we to close doors” to anyone - even Martians.

In a homily dedicated to the concepts of acceptance and inclusion, Francis recalled a Bible story about the conversion of the first pagans to Christianity, according to reports on Vatican Radio.

He said Catholicism was a church of “open doors”, and that it was up to Christians to accept the Holy Spirit however “unthinkable” and “unimaginable” it appeared.

Describing how, according to the Bible, Peter was criticised by the Christians of Jerusalem for making contact with a community of “unclean” pagans, Francis said that at the time that too was “unthinkable”.

“If, for example, tomorrow an expedition of Martians came to us here and one said ‘I want to be baptised!’, what would happen?”

Clarifying that he really was talking about aliens, the Pope said: “Martians, right? Green, with long noses and big ears, like in children’s drawings.”

Francis said that Christianity had struggled from its earliest stages with the temptation to reject “the living presence of God” in various forms.

But he added: “When the Lord shows us the way, who are we to say, ‘No, Lord, it is not prudent! No, let's do it this way’. Who are we to close doors?”

While Francis appears to have taken the argument to its logical extreme, this is not the first time that the Vatican has raised the prospect of baptising extra-terrestrial beings.

Speaking at the British Science Festival in 2010, one of then-Pope Benedict XVI’s astronomers said he would baptise an alien “if they asked”.

Besides being hilarious, baptizing Aliens of course would completely destroy the integrity of the Bible and destroy people's belief in the Catholic Church. If Aliens are real, why aren't they mentioned as something that God created in the Bible? What aren't they in Genesis? If God created us in his likeness, what likeness are the Aliens created in?

Aliens are real and belief in them is a massive threat to the illegitimate Catholic Church. In order for people to accept Chrisitianity once we start interacting with Aliens we will all have to rethink our conceptions of Christianity. There are 38 other Alien Species in our universe that God also created. They have souls like us. They are good and bad like us. They go to Heaven if they are good like us and hell is they are Bad.

There are no martians on Mars. They are no aliens on the Moon. Alien UFO sightings are real but they are not allowed to speak with us because the magliens are on Earth and we are under quarantine. Aliens do not abduct people - there are no anal probes, that's just the illuminati trying to scare people about aliens.

Christ's origial revelations included discussions about God creating other alien races. The Catholic Church when the murdered Jesus and his wife Mary Magdelena hid all of that. Paul rewrote the Bible and changed 90% of Christ's teachings.

At that time Paul had a maglien body snatcher inside him. The magliens - the only race of purely evil space aliens out there - took over the Catholic Church and they've always wanted to hide the existence of Aliens because they are infact aliens.
