    So let me get this straight... between them and the Big G Man stands this guy who sells indulgences to Tony Blair, joined the Hitler Youth and protects kiddy-fiddlers from the law?

    What does JC have to say about this curiousity because I cannot remember him describing such a framework?

    ........but if you do indulge you MUST eat this cracker and say 452,716 Hail Mary's and drop 15 % of the take in my real estate fund. Yes. It's tax deductible.

    @2 That makes a lot of sense then. I'll slosh back some wine while I'm at it, pretending it's blood.

    Maybe he's going to Argentina? Maybe he will say something about their government?

    Maybe I shouldn't hold my breath! 12 months in the Hitler youth, 60 years of silence on pedo Catholic priests child! He should be right at home in Argentina!

    Maybe they will greet him with the national anthem and present him with an Argentine flag! I can see all the eyes watering now.... and all the old dears... “my husband was also in the Hitler youth, before we had to flee to Argentina!”

    I'm not a papist, because unlike Tony Blair, I believe in God. So can someone tell me how much wiping away a sin going for these days anyways?

    U$1'000'000 per indulgence? Does indulgence money get spent on silencing altar boys?
