Pope Francis fired the head of his Swiss Army for being "Teutonic".
Isis is in and the Germans are out.
Killing, schmilling. Let us not quibble about the "peace" of 2000 years of ethnic cleansing of Christians. But there is only so much stout sourpuss Germans the Pope can stand.
Setting the bigotry aside, I am beside myself that the man the Pope is firing is being slandered in the public square.
Who does that?
Who fires a man and then goes out to the newspapers and issues a character assassination, making it difficult for him to get hired somewhere else?
Even the most cruel task masters have more decency.
All his bellyaching about how much he cares about families who need to put food on the table and this is the way he and his administration treats his own employees.
Machiavelli eat your heart out.
The Pope's reckless disregard for his own safety probably had something to do with his head of security overcompensating to try to keep him safe?
The Swiss Guard is a branch of the military. Is he so entrenched in the stink of sissy he is going to foist it upon the army?
Can you imagine trying to secure a job after the Pope publicly announces your termination and assassinates your character?
Every job interview, recognition will result in: "That's the guy who saintly Pope Francis said was wrapped too tight."
Don't worry sir, when you run out of cash and get evicted, Pope Francis has installed showers so you can wash up.
I guess his head of security must not have been living with his lover, so the Pope felt comfortable making a judgment, engaging in public humiliation and making sure he is not employable?
That is quite a papal undertaking in Advent. All to demonstrate what a nice guy he is.
"Merry Christmas you filthy animal. And a Happy New Year too."
