New Jersey Devils 2008 Goal Horn (UPDATED)

Again controversy is again a cover of Time magazine and this time it is the turn of the Pope Francisco. The publication devoted the cover of its new issue, which goes on sale tomorrow, the pontiff referred to the Vatican with the headline: 'The people's Pope' (The Pope of the People).

With a profile picture and the shadows, the Pope's face is barely recognizable. But what has sparked controversy in social networks is the 'coincidence' that the two edges of the letter M capital corresponding to the head of the publication match appear in the pontiff's head, making it look like two red horns that poke.

While some think it's just coincidence, other voices on the Internet suggest that the magazine wants to give it that evil priest in a black cover, among shadows and devil horns.

It is the second time the Pope appears on the cover of the publication-the first was in the context of his election last March, and this time is devoted to a report on his attendance at World Youth Day Youth of Rio de Janeiro.

The cover will come to Europe, Asia and South America ten days after that Vanity Fair also devoted its cover to the Pope after electing 'Man of the Year' , assessing their gestures, words and actions.
