Pope Francis gets medical checkup at an Adventist Medical Center in Manila – not true

A satire and humor website BarelyAdventist.Com posted an article saying Pope Francis got an impromptu medical checkup at Adventist Medical Center Manila as he is still acclimating to the heat and humidity after his arrival in the Philippines.

The article, meant to bring humor to readers, added that the Pope said, “I always feel safer with an Adventist hospital nearby.” Vatican Apostolic Nunciature in Manila, where the Pope is staying for his Philippine visit, is approximately 3.5 kilometers away from the said medical center.

The writer further adds: The Catholic leader reserved his highest praise for the tasty vegetarian food at the Manila Sanitarium cafeteria. “This food is delicious,” he said, touching his fingers to his lips. “You may even convince an old Argentine to go vegetarian!”

However, many readers were not amused with the said satire article.
