The Pope has used every possible medical resource to survive despite a long tradition od condemning medecine

Dio Non Esiste As the pope was lying unconscious, iwasn't it symbolic of the church itself, a dying vestige of the past, out of place in the 20th century? A neuro-degenerative pope leading a neuro-degenerative church. He has been a wonderful example of hypocrisy, following in the true church's tradition of condemning any new advance in science, and yet he used all possible medical treatment which only yesterday was condemned by his predecessor. The inquisition who burned midwives as witches in the 1500s would have condemned today's pontiff for his hospitalisation as surely as today's pontiff condemns tomorrows stem cell medicine.
