Vatican Insider | Pope Benedict Fixes Votes
Pope Benedict has just created 18 new Cardinals in a ceremony in The Vatican. What is he up to? We tell it as it is.

Gliding on a motorised platform, like something in a futuristic movie, Pope Benedict went up the aisle of a church in the Vatican. Once at the altar the incantations start and when finished 18 new Cardinals are miraculously created. These men (don’t forget women are not allowed) will be able to vote at the Conclave, follwing the death of glider pope Benedict, where it will be decided who becomes the next Pope… as long as they are not over 80 years old as only popes keep their marbles after eight decades. Cardinals (like all mortals except the papa) go ga-ga.

Living in a Garden of Delights
It is difficult for many pundits to comment of the goings on in the Vatican. Many still believe that adverse remarks will have them damned to hell for eternity. Others are paid to make news stories and statements which flatter the pontiff. Still more are too stupid to read the writing on the wall. None of these applies to the AndAnotherThing team… we’re – like anyone who points out that the pope is evil, wrong, fallible or stupid - already sentenced to an afterlife of agony in Hieronymus Boschville.
Fixing Votes | Deciding who is Second in Command to God
It was long ago decided that the Pope is God’s representative on Earth. By creating 18 new Cardinals, who can vote in the postmortem Conclave, Pope Benedict has ensured that he has decided the outcome. The Cardinals have been given their new status – including extra pay and earthly luxuries – for voting as Benedict has instructed them. Such matters are far more important than dealing with the child abuse carried out by those the Catholic Church still protects to this day. Amen.
