*** begin quote ***
Pope Francis has changed the teachings of the Catholic faith to oppose the death penalty in all circumstances, the Vatican has said.
The Catechism of the Church, which sums up the teachings, had previously stated that the death penalty could be used in some cases.

Well, a stopped clock is right twice a day! I never needed the Pope to tell me that the “death penalty” is immoral.
What changed after all these centuries?
Did he wake up one morning and decide? Divine inspiration? Need a new way to get publicity? Seek to distract from the ongoing paedophilia scandals!
I’ll vote for “distraction”.
The Papacy has lost all credibility and moral authority.
