I missed the Spanish Inquisition, and I was far too young to join the crusades. So my question is this, how can a young Catholic merge religious fervor and a love of weaponry? More to the point, how would I join the Vatican Guard? With the whole celibacy thing going on, I doubt there is a large pool of post-pubescent teens in the Vatican. Where do they draw their members from?
They’re called the Swiss Guard and they wear funky uniforms.
I see that link didn’t have admission requirements…hmmm.
Am I going mad? I posted to this thread (along with someone else) and both of our posts are gone.
This is a duplicate thread that was already started (and answered) a half hour ago over here
thanks peepthis. I really thought I was losing it.
I, however, didn’t read far enough down the page to see the other one.
I’ll close this copy and direct further comment to the other copy, linked to above by peepthis.
