Am I being completely naive and/or unreasonable to be shocked to learn that the Pope has a butler? (He, the butler, was recently arrested for leaking Vatican secrets.) I don't expect the Pope to wash and iron his own frocks but somehow his having a butler seems awfully louche and self-indulgent.
I think the whole panoply of the Catholic church is as far removed from the teachings of that very simple person, Jesus, as it is possible to be. It surrounds itself with pomp and circumstance all paid for by their congregation, and jealously hoarded at the expense of the poor who need it.
