    Hollow gesture is hollow.


    And besides, you can't dictate salvation.

    Excommunicated =\= Hell.

    Article is here.
    I presume he will also give back all of the Mafia tainted money the Vatican has received over the decades.

    Some people think that John Paul I was murdered by the mafia for his intention to stop the Vatican Bank from laundering money on their behalf.

    Why do you think so? Since his elevation, Pope Francis doesn't seem to have been cooling his jets.

    One challenge will be the fairly common heretical belief in Santa Muerte. Santa Muerte - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I think the Sicilian and Neapolitan mafia is gonna go after him, Catholicism is very important to the Cosa Nostra and the Camorra, many of their rituals center on it so for him to "excommunicate" them is a very major insult.

    There is no Mafia.
    And there always is forgiveness in the last rites.

    I was responding to your point on the Mexican drug cartels.

    Crue, there is a "Cosa Nostra," even here in the United States.
