Dennis Rodman

I'm Goin' To Meet

The New Pope

3/12/2013 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0311_dennis_rodman_vatican_compositeDennis Rodman -- fresh from his basketball summit in North Korea -- is now setting his sights on fixing those pesky problems plaguing the Catholic Church ... because he's jetting to Rome today in hopes of meeting the new Pope.

Rodman tells TMZ ... his "people" in Rome have been in touch with the muckety mucks at the Vatican and they're trying to arrange a sit-down with the next person to don the big funny hat.

Rodman -- who wants to be there when the white smoke fills the air -- is gambling just a bit, because the Cardinals are voting today and Rodman won't land until late tonight.  But our top Catholic source -- Shevonne -- tells us ... it's unlikely anyone will get the nod on the first vote.

As for what Dennis wants to accomplish ... he tells TMZ, "I want to be anywhere in the world that I'm needed ... I want to spread a message of peace and love throughout the world."

Rodman cites his March North Korean excursion -- where he met with leader Kim Jong Un -- as proof he's the right man to hash out a peace plan ... claiming he broke barriers in the DPRK nobody else could.

Pope/Rodman summit

  • Bad for Catholics
  • Good PR move
So we gotta ask ...

Maybe Rodman can take Shevon to the Vatican to meet the new pope which we all know will never happen. Then he can take her to North Korea and Meet Kim Jong UN and feast on some house cats while in the palace.

U.S. Anti-Drug Think Tank     

Let me introduce the Cardinal, who should be Pope. He should have been Pope after JPII, but the Cardinals hit an error. This Cardinal may not be the next Pope, because the College of Cardinals have free will and don't listen very well to the Holy Ghost. Without further ado, voici Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, Archbishop of Vienna. Let us pray they get a hit this time. Amen. Alleluia.

What an idiot. The Vatican wouldn't let this clown near the new Pope. Besides Rodman will be struck with lightning if he goes to the Vatican.

Probably Kim jong Un PENIS was too small to satisfy his rectum. Now is looking for a gangbang with the Cardinals and the new pope. POS
