Exit Pope Benedict, enter crazy conspiracy theories2/11/2013
Several hours have passed since Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation, which means it's time for conspiracy theories to start circulating. Before you converse with your creepy neighbor in the tinfoil hat, here are the biggies. Some believe that Benedict is hanging up his pointy hat because a scandal is about to rock the Catholic church. Others think it’s because of additional details about his childhood in the Hitler Youth (he has admitted being forced into the group), or because of his "culpability" in the ongoing sex-abuse allegations against priests. "The Queen's a year older than The Pope," Piers Morgan tweeted. "Can't see her ever resigning because she's tired." Wait, can someone just investigate why Piers is actually making sense? [Source]
