I'd like to see the church dissolved, the money go to the needy and/or scientific research, and the pedophile priests that have been protected to be exposed and sent to prison.

The Pope adopts social media, loses interest in his day job. Understandable.

The Church as an institution has many flaws, so does the US government. I don't advocate the dissolution of either.

Maybe they'll be able to elect a pope who wasn't a Nazi/sex offender this time.
