I'd have laughed at this if it were the old Sith Lord pope, but I think the new guy has promise.
We'll see. Words are cheap. And every time he says something remotely conciliatory the cardinals and bishops are there to explain it all away.
I noticed that. They're so much like the republicans. They try to 'walk it back' whenever he says something good. I didn't mean that I didn't agree with your comic, just that the old pope played "evil asshole" a lot better than this guy.
