Pope Benedict resigning? D:
#51
Wasn't the last pope to resign Celestine back in the 1290s?  The Church got Boniface VIII then, so it wasn't a good trade.

Back when the American pediphile scandal broke back in the late 1990s, I remember a Time cover story asking "Can the Catholic Church Survive?"  I immediately though "These guys have never heard of the Protestant Reformation.  If Luther couldn't bring the Church down, nothing can."  Apparently, over ten years later, people still don't study history...
