Pope Francis prompted a little bit of ruckus on the web Thursday after he appeared to help the usage of the center finger in a Twitter submit. The submit, which has since been eliminated, highlighted the center finger, saying it was an emblem of honesty.

“The center finger, which is increased than the others, reminds us of one thing important: honesty. To be sincere means not getting entangled within the snares of corruption,” Pope Francis’ official account wrote within the now-deleted submit, shared by New York Magazine.

His rationalization adopted a collection of posts through which Pope Francis describes the attributes of every finger. He first wrote a comment on Twitter, saying, “God has positioned the present of life in your palms. Out of your palms tomorrow is born. Out of your palms, peace so missing on this nation can come about. I want to counsel some ‘components for the longer term:’ 5 of them, every akin to a finger in your hand.”

He began the collection with the thumb, which “symbolizes prayer,” adopted by the index finger which symbolizes “group,” earlier than reaching the center finger.

The submit was eliminated about 50 minutes later and changed with one refined change; the “center finger” was changed with “the third finger.” The descriptive posts have since been taken down however screenshots of the tweets have continued to go viral with former Congressman Joe Walsh tweeting, “Pope Francis shouldn’t have deleted it. I assumed it was an superior tweet.”

Pope Francis has been considered one of the savviest popes compared to his predecessors by moving away from the Catholic Church’s historical views on some topics. In a latest interview with the Related Press, he denounced the view amongst some throughout the Catholic Church that imagine folks throughout the LGBTQ+ group are criminals, saying “homosexuality isn’t against the law.” And stated all of God’s youngsters should be handled with dignity. Nevertheless, Francis didn’t go so far as to say homosexuality isn’t a sin, however did say there must be a distinction between against the law and a sin with regard to homosexuality.
