    The Pope has scheduled a meeting with the Italian president to request immunity from prosecution from the government.  The letter sent to the president prior to the Pope's resignation states:

    An Open Letter and Appeal to Giorgio Napolitano, President of the Republic of Italy
    from Rev. Kevin D. Annett, Secretary of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State:

    "...Our understanding is that, in the wake of pressure to have him resign his office because of his proven complicity in concealing child trafficking in his church and other crimes against humanity, Joseph Ratzinger is seeking the assistance of the Italian government in securing protection and immunity from legal prosecution."

    Perhaps this is why the Pope doesn't consider paedophilia as an absolute evil.

      Claire, don't you think this letter should be investigated to have ever even been written first. I'll wait to hear from a few real news stations before commenting. I did a fast search and found nothing from legit news stations.

            You mean that mediocre, unfunny commercial with unnatural scripting commenting on an outdated outlook of the internet?

            You expressed something other than agitated indifference towards that mind-numbing dreck?

              Wow.

              Are you actually that condescending?

              I hope they don't revoke your Mensa membership for being completely devoid of respect for others.

                So, so sorry that I prefer my comedic commercials to actually be, you know, funny?

                Like these, for example:

    LOL.

    From the same author that thinks the Pope was forced out because he won't tell the world about aliens, and thinks that Frankincense cures cancer, amongst other things

      Hey, why not, I just saw a post in facebook that claimed 4 cups of water 45 minutes before breakfast was a cure for Cancer.

            A small price to pay for having cured your cancer, I might think.

        Nonono man, I've got the solution: I'm fat and I eat nothing but junk food, and I don't have cancer! Clearly THAT'S the cure!

    I was waiting for this to start.   It's scarey how quickly fake letters become accepted as true on the internet.

    Hey Claire. Let's not take any chances that this isn't true, or he will be granted immunity. I've got pitchforks, you bring the torches and we'll gather the lynch mob on the plane ride over.

      I don't think they will let us on with the pitch forks, so lets call him over with some hand gestures.

        Zelkiiroposted 5 years agoin reply to this

        Well, they'll give you a knife and fork on the plane, so that's kinda like having a small sword and a small pitchfork...

          Do you realize how demented we would appear, standing outside of the Vatican, waiving plastic tableware while chanting 'off with his head'? Do you want to be laughed at?

              I'm not so sure about this, but OK. We'll have to get Claire to buy tea candles instead of torches; to keep in proportion with the weapons.

              Oh. And maybe we should inhale helium before we chant. That would be fun.

    It will be good to notice that the Pope himself didn't commit any crimes and all his responsibility is vicarious liability, that came on him just because he was elected pope. His only "crime" is to protect his "church" from scandal,as the chief officer of it. He failed hence he resigned, nobody will prosecute him.
    For that matter nobody will prosecute even real war criminals if they belong to the most powerful countries or backed by them.
