The pope: horny on main and cool about drugs. Not to mention His Papalness even has an evil nemesis pope. Sex-crazed, drunk, and evil nemesis? That's usually the trifecta for a cool antihero, not the Most Holy with a hotline to Jesus. But when your institution has been around since Christ the Risen Lord was handing out the papal titles, you contain multitudes, we guess.
Popes have always had a little gangster in them. One pope took a dead body to court. Our current pope survived a trip to Philly. Maybe they do have divine protection after all.
