    As a history buff this is pretty cool. I went to a Catholic High School as a Protestant. Interesting experience.

    They get to be one of the most powerful men in the world and wear dresses to work every day.

    I wouldn't call the pope a powerful man, just a powerful puppet master.

    The things he decides have an impact on millions of people worldwide and he has access to vaults of information that any historian would kill for. He also controls probably the richest organization in the world, an organization that millions give 10% of their income to for questionable returns.

    I'd say he's pretty fucking powerful.

    Whatever he decides, it will be the right decision. The guy is infallible.

    I think he decided to let the next infallible guy handle this whole "priests having sex with boys" fiasco.

    Stepping down as the ruler of a organization founded upon a book of fake stories. Great résumé builder.

    They lead an evil organization and encourage immorality through preaching and instruction.

    Most importantly, they protect child molesters from prosecution and con people out of their paychecks.

    He is a relic of an ignorant past.
