In my opinion,there would be no need for the 'inhumane'mafia in Southern Italy;IF there was a 'humane'government in Southern Italy.Pope Benedict should indeed criticize inhumane organizations;having been a member of the Nazi's party in His youth?

There is a vast difference between the youth group that Pope Benedict belonged to, and the Nazi party that we all know and hate.

Go an' excommunicate 'em, Ratzy! THAT'll get 'em quaking in their boots.

You could always recommunicate (unexcommunicate?)'em if they 'promise' to straighten out again (and they're not involved with your private 'vatican bank' and all ITS corruption).
