I didn't expect a sort of Spanish Inquisition

…but perhaps I should have: ABC News: Cardinal Ratzinger of Germany Is New Pope
How old is Pope Benedict XVI anyway?
I am correct that “the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith” is just the old Inquisition re-branded, right?
So I guess he was probably acting as a kind of vice-Pope during JPII’s infirm years anyway.
This can’t be good.

    I am not sure that the “Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith” is a rebranding, but is pretty close to the original, official name of the inquisition.
