Vatican chess: bishops and queens


  1. I have this feeling that the depravity we hear about from the cronies of this current pope is only the tip of the ice berg

  2. Amazing bit of deflection -- typical Roman Catholic:

    London, Ontario's Father Paul Nicholson suggested in his blog that observers can wonder how much Pope Francis knows about Father Radcliffe.

    “The Holy Father is only a man, and is limited in how much he can know about any and every appointment,” Father Nicholson wrote. “His primary language is Spanish and perhaps he has not been sufficiently briefed. And that may be done intentionally by those around him.”

    1. Bracketing other issues, since his dad was Italian, I'd expect Francis to be fluently bilingual in Spanish and Italian. Surely he and his dad spoke Italian to each other.
