Default Pope Benedict resigned due to impending arrest?

Quote:
Benedict, who as a bishop prevented a convicted abuser from being defrocked, and as a cardinal asserted the church's right to secrecy in the face of assault allegations, spent much of his papacy passively facing increasingly widespread sexual assault revelations. Is it possible that more—and worse—revelations are coming? The new HBO documentary, Mea Maxima Culpa, which premiered last week, indicts Benedict and the Vatican he presided over: as filmmaker Alex Gibney told the Daily Beast, the case he explored "uncovered documents that lead straight to the top, straight to Joseph Ratzinger-then-cardinal Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict." Did Mea Maxima Culpa push the pope over the edge?

Cool. Maybe this new diversion will get the tin foil hat crowd off of their stupid Sandy Hook threads.

That was my original guess. But I got called out by the hear no evil see no evil crowd for pointing out that there was most likely more to the story of a pope randomly resigning for the first time in 600 years than he was tired

What's the reason for the Pope? Someone tell me.

How often do they get a new one, is it a vote.

They were seeking to prosecute him in Germany (his home country). Word is that he will be staying in the vatican for his immunity status. If he ever goes to some other european countries he will be detained for trial or something. The vatican's security staff also said they would fear for his safety from the public if he ever leaves the vatican but living there they will provide 24/7 security to him. Pretty shady

pretty sure he is staying with the vatican, which means he has immunity. so, maybe pending scandal, but not arrest.
