So That's Why He Wanted to Be Pope

Apparently, the Pope is being sued (or more properly, "Joseph Ratzinger" was sued before he was elected Pope), and is claiming head of state immunity. No one seems quite sure what the outcome will be. Sounds like a scam to me.

Reader Note: while I'm not normally a fan of simply posting a news story without any commentary or explanation, this piece seemed like the sort of oddity that doesn't get much coverage on front pages, and therefore is the sort of news that you, the faithful, resurgent readers expect to be given full attention on PositiveMode. Also, it's relevant to an argument NegativeMode and I had regarding Vatican statehood (for one take on that, see Here).

It isn't an argument. You are wrong. Vatican City is a country. The fact that you personally do not view it as such does not make it less of a state. Because the United States doesn't recognise Myanmar doesn't make it any less of a country. Also, Fergie is a butterface.

As I recall, the argument had more to do with the uniqueness of the international recognition of the Holy See.

I've decided Jessica Simpson is a butterface. She looks like an alien.
