I haven’t read all the books, and I dislike portions of it, but it does present an interesting idea…
It’s a graphic novel, and because of some widespread disease, all the men in the world died because of their Y chromosome. All except for one (that we know of), and nobody knows why. In one of the books, a nun had to take temporary command of the Church because, of course, the pope died. She is also looking for a “virgin” pregnancy for a boy to become a Pope.
That got my brain going…What would happen if all the priests in the world died? Would that rule out all confessions, marriages, and Masses? Is the last man morally compelled to–you know–repopulate the earth? (whatever caused the disease is gone now, so any boy baby born won’t be hurt). Or is he morally compelled to become Pope so he can run the Church? Or would the power devolve to the nuns and sisters?
This is an interesting idea, and I was wondering what you guys thought of this problem.
