Okay, so Pope Benedict XVI was in the Hitlerjungen. And he was drafted into the Nazi Army.
The Cardinals don't have a problem with that.
Neither does Pius XII.
For a lot of people these days, their love for the Pope is inversely proportional to their adherence to his authority. Was John Paul the Great, as he may very well be known to History, a person with whom most Catholics in America agree on issues of birth control and sex and gender? These men are loved because they are ill-understood. Such are ideals.
