“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”
No, this post has nothing to do with The Lord Of The Rings, this is about Papal rings and the fact that the general public are, yet again, being fed a string of lies and deceit by the powers that be.
Don’t you hate it when people lie to you, and you know they are lying to you, and they continue to lie anyway?
Pope Benedict has resigned right enough, that part seems to be true, but not because of ill health or because he is senile or any of the other excuses offered to the public.
In fact since the shock resignation announcement the truth has seldom if ever raise it’s little head.
Now we are finding out that Benedict’s resignation really has to do with a frantic power struggle within the Vatican, and about scandals related to money-laundering via the Vatican’s IOR bank, and a gay sex ring among the Cardinals.
Can a younger man do what Benedict couldn’t and sort out the obvious mess that exists? Only time will tell. But it makes for an interesting election and tough time ahead for whoever gets the white smoke.
In the meantime the Holy See it seems is all at sea.

It should be interesting!
Oh, it will be interesting for sure, if we can dig deep enough to find out why.
The catholic church at its highest level being involved in questionable activities? Say it isn’t so! 😉
I think I’d be heading off to Gandolfo as well, and rather quickly.
You’re right, of course, it’s hardly a shocker – but do they really think they can cover everything up? We’re in the age of the interweb and instant communication, not waiting for a pigeon to arrive with a message tied to its leg!
I hope Father Guido Sarducci tosses his beanie into the ring.
He’s all for letting priest marry, but only each other.
I like your turn of phrase, that’s all I’m going to say 🙂
I don’t even know what to say to this.
Not much to say. Some people tell so many lies they don’t even know the truth any more.
Problem? The Cardinals will not elect a younger man, they will elect another old, partly ill, partly senile same-old-same-old man to act as the head of the Church.
You are probably correct.
