  •  Funny, when you're raised Catholic (6+ / 0-)

    you're indoctrinated with this image of bishops and cardinals as saints walking the earth. The higher their rank, the holier they must be.

    Who knew they were humans, with vanities, and schemes, and a lust for power, and lord knows what else?

    I mean, sure, we all eventually learned that the Church of centuries ago was corrupt and power-mad. But we were led to believe that was all ancient history.

    As my wife (NOT raised Catholic) likes to say: the Catholic Church is just the Roman Empire by other means.
