Never trust a man in a frock.

You never know what he might have been up to. All those people queuing up to kiss his ring, for one thing. And he did like an audience.

Wonder if the late Pope will have a chat with Calvi up in the big Church in the sky ?

He could ask him exactly WHAT Blackfriars Bridge looks like from the under-side !

The problems have been going on for decades, even before he came into office. There is no way it could have or should have gotten past his notice for all that time.

Exactly.. a saint would be far more humble than that..

Saw on the news last night that four people have been CHARGED with Calvi's MURDER.

Wonder if the Mafia/Vatican will pay for their defence as it is quoted that two of the charged have 'strong Mafia connections' ?? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/whistling.gif" alt="" />

Considering the new one is already 900 years old, I doubt we will have to worry about him for long. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

He was conscripted into the German Army.

I heard this rumour that the Allies used conscripts as well and if you dodged the draft you could be imprisoned. During the First World War the mighty Brits used to shoot deserters or conscientious objectors.

Now you all know that I don't like quibble..... in WW1, and in fact pretty much all wars, the British, like pretty much everyone else, shot those convicted of cowardice in the face of the enemy. Desertion is a different offence which may or may not have been construed as cowardice depending on the circumstances. It is of course fair to say that in WW1 there were some pretty ludicrous, and tragic, interpretations of "cowardice".

Conscientous objectors were those who objected to war on religious or moral grounds and were found other jobs to do, perhaps farming, or driving ambulances and so on. Remember Godfrey in Dad's Army? He won an MM as a conshy.

I heard a wicked rumour that "Hail Mary's" will no longer be said in church.

I understand it is now to be [color:"red"] "Seig Heil" !
[color:"black"]
