Archbishop Asks Pope For Godparents Ban To Fight Mafia

Posted: Updated:

An Italian archbishop has proposed getting rid of godparents as a way to fight the mob.

The archbishop says mobsters use the naming of a godfather as a way to unite criminal organizations and a ban would stop the mafia's influence.

According to The Catholic Register, the archbishop has discussed the idea of a 10-year ban with Pope Francis at the Vatican.

Last month, the pope vowed to excommunicate mobsters from the church.
