    a political influence and can affect other legislation as well, so a less politically oriented Pope would have been much better in my opinion.  Especially this particular Pope whose devotion to charity and social justice is that if members are totally committed to the Church first they will then give charitably as individuals outside their tithes to the Church.  In other words, it's very similar to the Republican trickle down economic plans in a sense.

    I expect to see him equally supporting austerity in both church and state, the people shouldering their responsbility for social welfare which will fall disportionately on the poor.  Shared sacrifice.

    So far the Vatican hasn't officially gone that far.

    More: Some men think the Earth is round, others think it flat; it is a matter capable of question. But if it is flat, will the King's command make it round? And if it is round, will the King's command flatten it?
