John Boehner and the Pope
It appears that John Boehner, who is Catholic, has resigned because the Pope made him realize that the Republican Party is evil and standing in the way of holy work like fighting global warming, helping the poor, and having mercy on immigrants.

And I’m not trolling. Boehner cried during the Pope’s speech. Apparently the Pope made him change his mind about being a Republican politician. He realized he was not going God’s work but rather he was standing in the way of God’s work.

But if Boehner winds up making huge amounts of money as a lobbyist after he leaves Congress instead of doing more righteous work, we will know that the Pope Effect didn’t last too long.
