It is said 'you are what you eat', hopefully you will not be what you drink. Pope Francis has confessed to drinking donkey's milk when he was a baby. Let's hope this poor soul will not become a donkey carrying the burden of guilt and proof or even the sins of the sinning followers and clergies. One must admire his courage to come clear in confessing his past activities. He must be made a saint while in office and not posthumously. Lets put our fingers crossed to see whether he can do some miracle with the donkeys, perhaps teaching them to read some holy texts!
Even though there is a permission to eat wild ass (onager), however it is not permitted to eat domesticated donkey. But the consensus of the scholars is that it is haram. My concern is that with the growing number of anti-hadith Muslims, there will be a strong call to legalize the donkey meat. Does this donkey fall within the definition of al-An'am (cattle)?
