Marxist ideology doesn't pay for Prada shoes, so of course Darth Benedict is going to be opposed.

He's a bit busy writing Santorum's speeches and agenda for the next 4 years. Maybe later.

He should put his own house in order...

The Vatican City Papal state has:

One of the world's lowest ages of consent - at 12 years old

The highest per-capita crime rate in the world (600 crimes recorded for 500 inhabitants)

I know these are statistical anomalies and inherited laws, but still!

Catholics.

I thought Catholics look up to the pope for religious guidance (which is also pretty dumb) I didn't think they all saw him as some kind of political genius as well.

Not sure, but I've heard you can only vote there if you are a Cardinal or higher and under 80 years old.

You're misunderstanding the dogma. The Pope is not assumed to be infallable at all times. He is only considered infallable when setting matters of church doctrine.

I'm aware of that being the technical definition. I'm speaking practically though not theoretically. Do you know any catholics in real life? Serious ones?

Quite a few in fact and none of them believe the Pope to be infallable.

You're silly. I suppose the people there that don't like the rules are forced to stay or locked up in prison as well. I don't see the problem in anything you've said because people can simply leave the Vatican City, if it's a problem for them.

I don't understand your point. The people that stay there uphold the laws of the Papal State. If you don't see a problem with 12 years old as a reasonable age of consent, then I think you're the one being silly.
