    And the best ones, with the widest support and the most favorable CVs were from Italy. Scolora and Rivesi I think were their names.

    I don't know what the instructions the Pope left after he retired... if he left any at all, but this seems too fast... too rushed. Meh, maybe it will be fine.
    it seems the italian clique in the vatican was something the pope's butler was trying to expose, when he stole papal documents to validate his claims

    I hope that he will and that his example will inspire other world leaders to do the same.

    Paranoid of what? He's very open and adamant about his views.

    The Vatican is deathly afraid of change that's for sure. They have in the past made large, bold moves. Just not anytime lately and they just keep voting in really old guys that tend to be more stuck in their ways.

    From what I understand he is far more apt to crack down harder on that crap than his predecessors.
