Someone I know, who is brought up a Catholic, told me an interesting theory about the Pope and the Vatican. She said that the Vatican is run by a mafia. Not the mafia from Sicily, but the Catholic church mafia. She thinks that the Pope is basically a puppet, who is told what to say and do. Her theory is that the Vatican is in it to make money, and that if the Pope doesn’t toe the line, they can make him disappear.
Intersting theory, I thought. Mind you, she also believes in a thing called “The New World Order”, where there’s only so many people who rule the entire world, ruled by Swiss bankers. Apparantly Bush and Blair are members of this New World Order.
Conspiracy theories? Is there any truth to it, do you think?
