Fr Corapi gets it

He said the Pope can call all the Bishops in and tell them they have to do this and that and they will all say "Yes Holy Father." and they go back to their diocese and do whatever they darn well please. Unfortunately the Pope doesn't have a prison to send bad Bishops too.

My response to that however is the Pope does have the authority to defrock bad bishops. In fact, I bet all it would take is a hand full of defrocked Bishops before the rest of them start to toe the line.

I have long pondered why the excommunications do not come.  Why?

Is it because he's a softie, or doesn't see clearly?  No, not Benedict.  JP2 maybe.

Is it because he fears the backlack of hate he would receive, from within and without the Church?  Again - not this guy.  He doesn't care.

I think it's because 'they' have something.  It is politics.  If much of Windswept House is to be believed then the pontiff simply does not control large areas of the Vatican, and the Church.  'They' would do something outrageous or terrible if he were to go so far as excommunicate the heretics - a lot of them anyway.

One would think he could at least get away with, say, Weakland, though.

EDIT: As part of this I would add that think Benedict cares deeply about the faithful and his primary worry might be what effect 'they' could have on them.  (Which begs the question - could it be worse than what it's already been?)
