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

    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.
