According to CBS news the Vatican announced the pope will pardon those who follow him on Twitter. I don't know if this is just a light hearted joke to attempt to connect with younger "followers", but it reveals the arrogance of their authority. It is the heroin of power that corrupts. Anyone who sits on a throne proclaiming he is superior to anyone, is blinded by the arrogance of ignorance, they can't see outside their own self importance. It is an unstable tower designed to entrap "followers", feeding off their energy, donations, and attention. All to exalt themselves someplace between us, the common person and God, they sustain this illusion by placing confirming symbols atop their heads, pure white robes, special golden hats that only they are qualified to wear. This silently suggests they are somehow holier than thou, separate from the fate of normal peons. It is all so dark and perverted they should be asking for forgiveness instead of offering a watered down version of salvation. It is a nasty concoction that is designed to enthrall anyone in proximity of their control.

Before you become too enraged please let me offer a thought to give you a more balanced view: The Church is losing control and with each instance of their arrogance their "control" gently slips away. Between their old wrinkly fingers their followers have been dripping down to freedom. Slowly they are losing all that their collective egos have conquested for. The governments of Europe and around the world are beginning to lose faith in the Vatican, and one day in the distant future the Vatican will just be a novelty and a remembrance of our past. We know this as truth because we can view the battle plan of the Vatican. They are evolving to change with the modern world, and fortunately for us, the modern world has little room for a perverted hierarchy that desperately needs people to control. This is all an evolution of humanity. It is simply something that takes centuries to overcome.
