Disconnecting the Catholic Church from organized crime? They basically invented it.

Next they'll try to stop all that cattle rustling.

Because when I think of the major problems the Catholic Church should really solve immediately, it isn't raping kids, it's the optics of having the church associated with organized crime.

Nice savior ya got here in dis manger.  Real shame if sumtin were ta happen to it.

Leave the cross.

Take the cannoli.

These guys have much more important work to do. They've never issued a report on how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, and we're all waiting

Don't forget what happened last time a pope tried to cross the mob.

The two aren't necessarily unrelated.

"It's not religion! It's superstion!"
Really? Well that's enough to make a cat laugh. I don't know what I'd do if I absolutely had to leave a kid in the care of either a mafiosi or a monsignor.

I mean, technically the fact they covered up for pedophiles would make them an organized crime syndicate themselves. They're just a tax advantaged organized crime syndicate.

FACT: Mary the mother of Jesus lacks the qualifications to be ordained Catholic clergy. Her vagina, however virginal, disqualifies her.

This wouldn't be true in the early Church. Yes, modern Catholic women have fewer opportunities within Catholicism than Catholic women in the First Century.

Not categorically excluding half the people on Earth from the priesthood might go a long way in solving your endemic "priest shortage" you stupid misogynistic, pedophile-protecting homophobic dickholes.

But yes, your mafia connections are also a bad look.

Remember when Pope Francis said "let's look into the Bank of the Vatican" and the response was basically "you wanna be Popped Francis?"

I like that baptism scene out of the Godfather:

"Do you renounce Satan" "I do"

BLAM BLAM BLAM

"And all of his works" "I do"

BLAM BLAM BLAM

The Vatican should just consider canonizing a lower profile replacement and offer that to the mob as a patron saint.  What about Giuseppe "Piccoli Dadi" Umbriago who would actually recite the rosary as he cut off parts of rival's bodies into small bits?  Hail Mary for each finger, an Our Father for the whole hand, things like that?

Simple error in translation. Coulda happened to anyone...

Yeah, good luck with that, Padres.

She'll just morph into Santa Muerte, as she has done in Latin America.

There's some debate about that. Here's a link to Ed Calderon's page on IG where he shares clips of an interview about Santa Muerte. In the comments below that he replies to someone that Santa Muerte is the Pre-Colonial mother goddess being revered.

Consider that he's ex-federale and offers courses on Mexican Occultist linked to crime to police departments, I'd believe him over some new ager pagan on Facebook.

( check him out on Joe Rogan too. )

I'm a bit foggy with allergy medication tonight.

Ed is offering a course on occultism in cartel culture which he previously offered to police departments abroad.

The new department at the Pontifical International Marian Academy, the Vatican's premiere academy for Mariology, the part of Christian theology dealing with the mother of Jesus Christ, now wants to put an end to it.

Gee, and it only took you two hundred years to make that decision.
