  1. It’s too bad this scumbag won’t be going to prison for all his crimes. Cardinal Rat started life as a member of the Hitler Youth and descended from there. His rise to the top of the world’s biggest criminal organization really began when he was put in charge back in the mid-1980s of covering up child rapes. It remains the biggest child raping ring in human history. If only there really was a hell for pedophile protectors like the pope.
