    It's all about money and power and politics.

    Christ warned us that His kingdom is not of this world, a message the Catholic church largely ignored.

    Instead, they set up their own little world government in Rome with their own land and personal army and massive bank accounts.

    Walking into the Vatican is like walking into a Greek or Roman pagan temple with all of their god treasures laying around.

    So instead of destroying the pagan abominations, they celebrate them as art knowing they are worth a fortune.

    Bold? I don't think so. Of course it is serious. Catholic news sources are running this story too. You asked if this was the end of the Catholic Church. I said no because most Catholics won't stop being Catholic or Christian because of sinners making trouble. Your faith has to be pretty wispy already for that to happen.

    But most Catholics I know only identify as Catholic because their mommy or daddy were Catholic. They don't go to mass and know very little about the Bible. They are essentially non-practicing Christians.

    It is then understandable that most Catholics vote Dim.

    U.S. religious groups and their political leanings

    44% lean left and 37% lean right.

    The Pope covered up the pedophile deeds of one Bishop. He should resign.

    Or at least sober up.

    Well it's like Hillary going to jail.

    Money and politics dictate that this will never happen.

    Luckily, it will cause more people to flee the Dim party, however, so there is an upside.

    Not talking about Hillary covering up pedophilia. We're talking about the Pope doing that.
