Whew! That was a close one. Turns on that the Pope has granted absolution to Jacques de Molay and the Templar Knights falsely accused of crimes confused to under torture (that’s real Spanish Inquisition kind of torture Statists, not Good Cop / Bad Cop). Oh, but not Pope Benedict XVI, but Pope Clement V. Looks like the paperwork got hung up at the Vatican in the bureaucracy. But they got it all straightened out so Jacques and the boys can be cut loose.
Oh, uhhh, Phillip IV already did them in? That’s too bad. Can the families of the Templars sue France for restitution?
Does this mean Catholics can be Masons now?
