    I do not envy him that job.

    Good Luck on cleaning THAT mess up!

    If he tries to clean up the Vatican bank from doing its money laundry business he might wake up dead like Pope John Paul I .

    Whatever one feels about the Roman Catholic Church, the immediate future certainly looks like it will be entertaining.
    Boy, I wish I was a whole bunch of flies on a lot of walls inside there at the moment.
    And some people are surely squirming. The comfortable ride is going to get rather bumpy.

    The cardinal seen as a rabid reformer who’d clean things up is still a cardinal. The cardinal seen as the biggest insider who’d make sure things stayed exactly as they are is still a cardinal.


    Pope Cisco the Kid should be shown holding question marks in both hands, with a few sparrows perched on his arms.


    We know all about the rumours that he helped the government create desaparecidos, and the story of the tiny flat with no servants that he lived in as cardinal, and that he mostly used public transportation. But what he’ll be as Pope, no one except maybe Cisco has any idea.

    And Obama is still president. Get on with your life Ima. There are 1 billion plus people to whom this DOES matter. Read some world history to figure out why!

    Nice cartoon. It hadn’t occurred to me that if they HAD chosen a pope from Africa, The Onion could have re-run it’s headline “Black Man Given World’s Worst Job.”

    Christianity was founded on the teachings and ministry of a man who railed against the corruption and abuse of organized religion of his time. How sad that the organized religions that claim to spread Christ’s teachings have themselves become corrupt, abusive, and oppressive.

    “Whatever one feels about the Roman Catholic Church, the immediate future certainly looks like it will be entertaining.”

    Entertaining to disinterested middle class straight men, perhaps. I highly doubt those who are ignored or oppressed by Church dogma find it so.

    He’s gonna need that extra-strength cleanser. You know, the one that’s labeled “for use on built-up lies, corruption and malfeasance”.

    Can’t argue with that.
    I hope all other religions clean up their acts in this regard. Especially the Dalai Lama’s group.
    And then they go after the Atheists. They’re no better than any other.
    And finally root out all institutions that have no affiliations to anything but have harmed children.

    For some good reason, we need Ima and ConserveGov…

    Pope Francis I has his own skeletons, his pious persona and his close ties to the dictators of Argentina. He has done scrubbing of the slime in his background but some of us know it anyway.

    Like the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition.

    “I wasn’t expecting a kind of Spanish Inquisition”

    [JARRING CHORD]

    [The door flies open and Cardinal Ximinez of Spain enters, flanked by two junior cardinals. Cardinal Biggles has goggles pushed over his forehead. Cardinal Fang is just Cardinal Fang]

    Ximinez: “NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise…surprise and fear…fear and surprise…. Our two weapons are fear and surprise…and ruthless efficiency…. Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency…and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope…. Our four…no… Amongst our weapons…. Amongst our weaponry…are such elements as fear, surprise…. I’ll come in again.”
