Roger’s note: Apparently it was Mussolini who made the Vatican into a sovereign state.  Somehow that seems appropriate.

Amidst growing efforts by international law advocates to arrest and prosecute Pope Benedict for the Church’s cover-up of child sex crimes, Vatican officials have announced they will give the retiring Pontiff sanctuary, arguing that otherwise he would be “defenseless” – a feeling likely familiar to the Church’s many victims of sexual abuse. A week before his resignation, the Pope reportedly heard from an undisclosed European government that the International Tribunal into Crimes Against Church and State (ITCCS) had called on “all people of conscience” to “disestablish the Vatican,” and seek Benedict’s and others’ arrests for crimes against humanity. Their call comes as part of an upcoming Easter Reclamation Campaign that also seeks to seize the assets of the Church under international law. In addition, the New York-based Centre for Constitutional Rights has requested, on behalf of the Survivors’ Network, an international inquiry into the Church’s sheltering of pedophile priests. Pope Benedict is reportedly scheduled to meet next week with Italian President Giorgio Napolitano to request immunity against  allegations of child rape. We don’t really wish him well; we simply wish him what he legally and morally deserves.

“We call upon all citizens and governments to assist our efforts to legally disestablish the Vatican, Inc. and arrest its chief officers and clergy who are complicit in crimes against humanity and the ongoing criminal conspiracy to aid and protect child torture and trafficking.”

I haven’t smoked anything for a long time. With a name like “Buzzy Burza” alliteration is my second nature. With a head like mine puns are my first nature. You haven’t replied to my last letter and congratulations on your election. Can you vote there? Are you getting social security from the You Ass and/or a pension from Canada? And, if I may be bold, how much. I get $437 the month from Uncle Dunkle having just managed with 40 quarters beginning age 62 and I’ve just found out that I qualify for CanMon as they’ve changed things. Now you can be out 3 our of five years and the last increase for delayed retirement was January, 2013 when it went from 35 to 42% if you wait until 70. This could be a icing on life’s cake…Write quick…Love B
