Inquisition Leader becomes Pope Benedict XVI

So the head of The Inquisition is the new Pope. This will be interesting....

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith - the Vatican's guardian of orthodoxy since 1981 - which was originally formed as the Sacred Congregation of the Universal Inquisition and its duty was to defend the Church from heresy.

He will also be known as Benedict XVI.

More news/comments later when I have some time.
