pope ... cruisin' for a bruisin'

Francis issued a blistering indictment of the Vatican bureaucracy Monday, accusing the cardinals, bishops and priests who serve him of using their Vatican careers to grab power and wealth, of living "hypocritical" double lives and forgetting that they're supposed to be joyful men of God.
It may or may not be a mark of my ignorance, but it is hard not to think of the wondrous and intricate means of assassination the Vatican has been privy to during its long career.

  1. With that historic potential in mind, i notice he admonished but didn't reassign or demote anyone. Perhaps there are vatican laws that prevent a pope from doing so these days. Papal law and policy have changed, sometimes by outside influence, many many times, either limiting or restoring papal power.
