Urbi et Orbi

Pope Benedict XVI, the tiniest Pope ever to wave a red rag at a papal bull, has criticized the international economic system and called for a new global structure based on social responsibility, concern for the dignity of the worker and a respect for ethics. How about an international economic system based on selling indulgencies? In other words preserving the dignity of “the worker” by charging him money for forgiving his past and future sins or even the past sins of any dead people he might know? Worked well for the economy of the Catholic Church in the past.
