The first attempt.
This is the most outrageous thing I have read to date: Benedict XVI was forced from office.
All indications are that those who orchestrated what looks more and more like a hostile takeover of the papacy couldn’t even muster the patience to put on a good show at the conclave in order to hide the appearance of having preselected Jorge Bergoglio well before the doors were even locked.
No… Pope Benedict didn’t depart for reasons of physical and mental health, and there’s not a Catholic this side of brain dead who is still buying that lie.
I know! Here's an even better comment from that post:
I’ve read blogs wherein individuals claiming to be Argentines say that Bergoglio had a network of spies working at Rome since c. 2000 and that their main duty was to gather information that could be used to coerce or blackmail Cardinals into voting for him in the conclave.
Also, a report which said that once made AB of B.A. he moved 70 million euros from B.A. to the Vatican Bank. Since the Vatican Bank provides for the livelihood of most of the residential Cadinals, I suspect this was a bribe to buy the papacy.
I am also concerned about the reports that in the 30 days after the abdication, various high level clerics close to Obama offered Cardinals in the third world the promise of US Aide funding in return for their votes for Bergoglio.
All this needs to be investigated by the general public.
