ps: the Pope is coming to Philadelphia in 2015 for the "Year of the Family"! How exciting. I need to get pregnant quickly.

Will that be an Immaculate Conception or will you order the regular serving with grunting, sweating, and residual deposits?


At dinner tonight, we had a conversation about how much power the pope really has. 

If a pope decided to sell off everything (especially the Vatican), give all the money to the poor, and scale down the institution to a small church, would he have the authority to do it?  He is God's representative on Earth, after all.  If God told him to do it, who could question it?  Well, who could stop it? 

Or, would the hierarchy step in, and rule him coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs, and have him overruled?  Just something we thunk about.  Does the pope not have control over their assets, money and property?  Does his authority basically stop at setting church doctrine? 

I know it seems silly, but not totally out of the realm of possibility to have a pope go rogue.

Oh sweetie, those Cardinals would have his din-dins poisoned with some untraceable, undetectable nastiness faster than you could say "white smoke".
