  •  If it was the Vatican's practise to autopsey Popes (0+ / 0-)

    then I would agree with you that not doing an autopsey would be suspicious.  However, we don't know that.

    Instead, as the Catholic Church believes the Pope is God's chosen representative on Earth, I'm willing to bet the Church has never had an autopsey for a pope, and most likely never will.  The pope is the most God like person on Earth and having a doctor mutilate him after death would not be part of the long established religious rituals.

    These guys are guided by religion, not by what Western countries do.
