It was revenge for Ratzinger, and a lot of other things. That's that. There was nothing we could do about it. Ratz was a made man, Francis wasn't. We had to sit still and take it. It was among the Italians. It was real greaseball shiat.

lohphat: RexTalionis: brantgoose: He's going to drag the Church kicking and screaming into the Enlightenment?

Not for anything, but among the Christian denominations out there, the Roman Catholic Church is probably one of the most accepting of the principles of science and mathematics out there, especially compared to their Protestant and evangelical brethren. The Vatican has endorsed evolution to a higher degree than many other Christian denominations, including the ones who literally believe that the Earth is 6000 years old. The Vatican also has an official astronomer and observatory, plus the Pontifical Academy of Sciences uses the world's leading scientists to advise the Pope in matters of science.

The Church has changed a little since the trial of Galileo and it'd take a fool not to see that.

1992: Catholic Church apologizes to Galileo, who died in 1642

Does "very little" count?


Yeah! Its just like that time Rex took me on a camping trip through the Black Forrest but all there were all those goddamn trees in the way!

He's going to ordain a woman?

He's going to revive the priesthood by allowing married priests for the first time in over a thousand years?

He's going to drag the Church kicking and screaming into the Enlightenment?

No, he's going to try to wrest control of the Church from the Italians who over-whelming occupy the power structure, the bureaucracy, the Curia, and even the College of Cardinals.

Lots of luck, Pape. You've chosen a worthy goal. It's been good knowing you. You'd have better luck fighting the Mafia, not that there isn't a fair amount of over-lap between the Italian power base in the Church and the Mafia everywhere else in Italy.

So this is why Saint Malarky decided you would be the last Pope. Verily, your reward awaits you in Heaven, because their will be precious little peace for you on Earth.

Pope Francis: "It's time we admitted the entire thing is a swindle.There is no magical sky-beard. We just really like the money. And diddling kids. But mostly the money. "

Anything less is meh.

Sounds to me like they are just forming the League of Supervillains. Ratzinger would make an awesome Skeletor.

I'm no church historian. But I am pretty experienced in matters of political bureaucracy. And I'll say this. If you want to appear to be doing something without doing anything, you appoint an "advisory committee".

This.  The Illuminati are not going to like this.


I thought they all got slaughtered by Opperheimer, Feynman, Einstein, Gagarin, Laika, and Von Braun when they tried to stop Star City and The Manhattan Projects from joining forces.

Hipsters.

Too mainstream. They are into Alvianism, you've probably never heard of it.

I'd agree but I'm too busy climbing a mountain out of the tomb world with Mercer.

Nadie_AZ: For the first time, a pope will be helped by a global panel of advisers who look certain to wrest power from the Roman Curia, the church's central bureaucracy.

So ... more middle men, then?


It could be one of two things:

Francis is Eliot Ness  just picked up his UNTOUCHABLES.

Or

Michael Corleone just figured out a way to get rid of the five families.
