Special Report Grapevine: Alien Baptisms and Killer Robots?
Bye-Bye First Class: A bipartisan group of lawmakers has introduced legislation aimed at preventing members of Congress from flying first class using taxpayer funds. The bill, titled, "If Our Military Has to Fly Coach Then so Should Congress Act," would end the purchase of first-class flight seats with taxpayer money.
Alien Baptism: Pope Francis would absolutely baptize an alien from Mars, if one showed up at the Vatican and asked for it. Francis said that aliens should be baptized just like anyone else who asks for it, because it's not up to any human to decide who should receive the Holy Spirit.
Killer Robots: Diplomats are urging new international laws to govern the use of "killer robots" if the technology becomes reality someday. The debate is the first to be held at the United Nations about limits and responsibilities of so-called lethal autonomous weapons systems that could go beyond human-directed drones.
