    Very, very interesting (if accurate) but I don't like someone breaking their vow, either.

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.

    Very interesting.

    I dunno - I don't like secret practices either. Secrecy breeds unethical behavior.

    The history of the papacy and papal elections are interesting indeed. Compared to the Old Days (like, say, of the Borgias and Macchavelli) this is nothing.
