    Kick all of the male preists, bishops, cardinals and the pope out of the catholic church hierarchy. Promote the nuns to those positions. It won’t be perfect but it will be less corrupt, at least for a while.
    Tax religion/superstition, the churches, temples, mosques and other such entities retroactively back to 4 July 1776.

    Anybody as Pope terrifies me. I’m opposed to socialized religion.

    Here’s the etymology of “pope”:
    “Old English papa, from Medieval Latin papa “bishop, pope” (in classical Latin, “tutor”), from Greek papas “patriarch, bishop,” originally “father.” Applied to bishops of Asia Minor and taken as a title by the Bishop of Alexandria c.250. In Western Church, applied especially to the Bishop of Rome since the time of Leo the Great (440-461) and claimed exclusively by them from 1073. Papal, papacy, later acquisitions in English, preserve the original vowel." If a nun werer to be elected, would she be called the “Mama”? Or for short, “Mom”? (Or in Canada, “Mum”?)

    There was a song that I used to hear in folk clubs a few decades and a pope or two back — I don’t remember the whole song, and I can’t find it when I google, but the refrain goes something like:

    He don’t even have to use soap,
    He’s Luigi Montini,
    You know who I mean-i,
    The one with the beanie,
    Luigi Montini, the Pope.
    (aka Pope John VI)

    Not in my experience, Doc. I assessed a lot of CEO nuns back in the day. Those running Catholic healthcare institutions were among the best leaders I have ever seen in my 20+ years of assessing business leaders. In the US, anyway, they tended to be overly collaborative, if anything. They also had to find subtle ways to circumvent the arbitrary and ill-informed authority of the male hierarchy, which could veto any decision they made because…they’re guys.

    Cute, except that his name was Giovani Montini, not Luigi.

    Sorry to hear that. I was also raised in the South, which meant that Catholic churches tended to be more liberal — because we were so outnumbered!
