Dennis Rodman: I’m Goin’ to Meet the New Pope

Exclusive 0311_dennis_rodman_vatican_compositeDennis Rodman — fresh from his basketball summit in North Korea — is now setting his sights on fixing those pesky problems plaguing the Catholic Church … because he”s jetting to Rome today in hopes of meeting the new Pope.

Rodman tells our sources … his “people” in Rome have been in touch with the mucky muck”s at the Vatican and they”re trying to arrange a sit-down with the next person to don the big funny hat.

Rodman — who wants to be there when the white smoke fills the air — is gambling just a bit, because the Cardinals are voting today and Rodman won”t land until late tonight.  But our top Catholic source — Shevonne — tells us … it”s unlikely anyone will get the nod on the first vote.

As for what Dennis wants to accomplish … he tells our sources, “I want to be anywhere in the world that I”m needed … I want to spread a message of peace and love throughout the world.”

Rodman cites his March North Korean excursion — where he met with leader Kim Jong Un — as proof he”s the right man to hash out a peace plan … claiming he broke barriers in the DPRK nobody else could.
