Excluding altar boys, the Roman Catholic Church has no power over anybody.

Odd then, that when the Pope speaks, every news organization in the world makes note of it.

Call them up and let them know that the Pope isn't important. They seem to think he is.

I suppose it's refreshing that the Pope has suggested that the catholic church join the 20th Century.
