    You can't touch the Vatican. They are above the law. All you can do is to go after the lower rungs of the Catholic hierarchy.

    2 papal bulls:

    Libertas ecclesiae ("freedom of the Church" in Latin) is the notion of emancipation from ecclesiastical authority in relation to the temporal power, which guided the movement of Reform begun in the 11th century. It is also the name of a papal bull issued by Gregory VII in 1079.

    Pastor aeternus is the incipit of the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church of Christ, issued by the First Vatican Council, July 18, 1870. According to The Modern Catholic Dictionary, Pastor aeternus defines four doctrines of the Catholic faith: the apostolic primacy conferred on Peter, the perpetuity of the Petrine Primacy in the Roman pontiffs, the meaning and power of the papal primacy, and the infallible teaching authority (magisterium) of the Roman Pontiff.

    How do you serve the pope papers when he's 1. above your jurisdiction and 2. always right?
