German born Joeseph Ratzinger, formerly of the Hitler Youth who ascended to the papacy in 2005 following the death of his predecessor Pope John Paul II, has become the first pope in 600 years to resign his office.

In his letter of resignation Pope Benedict cited a 'lack of strength' and 'ill health'. However as all popes since Pope Gregory XII in 1415 have grown old, fallen ill and died in office it seems prudent to assume that his hand was forced somehow by someone influential, for reasons which may never be revealed...

If the old man didn't play ball he had to go. Hopefully a more "controllable" individual can be "elected".
