Here’s a gruesome excerpt from “Holiness!” by Vittorio Russo, Minerva Press, Chippenham, Wiltshire, 1996
“Infallibility to popes means the sins, vices and crimes you have continually soiled the earth with. Infallible is used to describe atheist popes like yourself, simoniacs, sadists, libertines, priests married with children, murderers, poisoners, sodomites, heretics, followers of Satan, fornicators and mass murderers. And what about all those popes who were poisoned, stabbed, who drowned, died of VD or were strangled in their beds with their lovers,” He went on heatedly, counting them off on the fingers of both hands, which did not suffice. “And those whose blood, or the blood that they shed and poured into the Tiber, which for centuries was an open cess-pit, as bad as the Ganges!”
“Well, some popes were not really up to it, I suppose…”
“Some popes? Just some of them?”
“No doubt You are going to accuse me of the awful things Boniface VIII and Alexander VI did… Crimes of arrogance and simony… But You have to take the times in which these men lived into consideration…”
“Boniface VIII had a lot of faults,” He replied after a brief pause, "but the worst of all was to have lived. As for arrogance, he not only gave form to it but face as well. It shone through his words, which are the banner of the church: We declare, announce and decree that it is necessary that every living creature be subject to the pontiff of Rome if he is to be saved. That’s what he said. He meant that they could be saved from him, and only by blind obedience. He could not have been referring to any kind of salvation, because he knew nothing of it. He devoted his entire existence to this theme.
