Pope Pulls A Palin

First Pope to Resign in 600 Years

THE HOLY SEE YA LATER


Very much more serious is the role of Joseph Ratzinger, before the church decided to make him supreme leader, in obstructing justice on a global scale. After his promotion to cardinal, he was put in charge of the so-called "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith" (formerly known as the Inquisition). In 2001, Pope John Paul II placed this department in charge of the investigation of child rape and torture by Catholic priests. In May of that year, Ratzinger issued a confidential letter to every bishop. In it, he reminded them of the extreme gravity of a certain crime. But that crime was the reporting of the rape and torture.

7. I'm going to have to come up with a new "saying" regarding the pope.

I used to say, "is the pope Polish?" to anyone asking an obvious question (so much more refined than "Does a bear shit in the woods?"). Then it was "is the pope a Nazi?" I wonder what the next one will be.
