With all those palaces, cars, Swiss guards and servants at their disposal, and abusing priests, what credibility does the Roman Catholic Church have about any subject?

If only we had the same choices, come on, is it me or is it that the Pope has the most to gain from being a consumer of all the things that go with the papacy?
He gets his own plane, a popemobile, and as the head of his own country, absolute power and control of the Vatican economy.
I do feel sorry for him though, he has tough decisions to make everyday, like what to eat and which costume to wear. All this against a backdrop of the finest of everything that money can buy.
Mr. Pope, don’t lecture me on the world’s consumerism, when you are one of the most, if not the most consumer-oriented person on the planet. Not only that, but you helped cover up one of the largest scandals to rock the church in its history. So, please don’t lecture me as a “holy” man, or anything other than a person who controls one of the largest economies in the world.
Should you repent, change the ways of the church and allow married and women priests, then I might listen to you as an authority on spiritual matters and matters of faith.

Ahhh now THIS is real satire. The hypocrisy of the papacy. Priceless.

This was EXACTLY my reaction while watching all that video footage from Sydney. This guy claims to be an intellectual? He should have his full panoply of degrees revoked; and, in the interest of what he claims to profess, he should start going around in nothing more than a Franciscan robe! It’s about time he learn a thing or two from those “little brothers!”

Good cartoonists are the best political commentators.
