When I read the title of this article, before I even read the actual content, I thought to myself 1)  Good luck proving that you're an actual descendant of a Templar in the first place and  2) there's no way the pope is going to give you money for this, but 3) maybe he could suggest some psychiatrists who might be more interested in hearing your story.  Turns out, those three things are what the reporters thought of as well.

This is ridiculous for so many reasons, but it does amuse me.
