What's the problem? There's no tongue action.

I know, I'm asking why no tongue action. Does the Pope have halitosis?

They're probably just grossed out by the taste of adult male.

Pope: Exploiting workers for profit is a mortal sin

I am going to give Frank a bit of a benefit of the doubt and assume that he means more than simply "employ" when he says "exploit."
VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis says employers who exploit their workers for their own profit are committing a mortal sin.
During his morning homily Thursday, Francis said such labor exploitation is a modern-day form of slavery. He said those who exploit workers are no different than the human traffickers of the past who enslaved Africans and sold them in the Americas.
According to a Vatican Radio transcript of his homily, Francis said: "Living off the blood of people, this is a mortal sin! A mortal sin. And it requires so much penance, so much restitution to be absolved of this sin."
History's first Latin American pope has frequently denounced the injustices of the global economy that he says has impoverished the poor and destroyed the environment while enriching the wealthy few.
However, since this comes from SFGate, the website and the commenters appear to take the two words as exact synonyms.

From my own point of view, "exploit" and "employ" both mean 'make use of', so there is an argument to be made that they are equivalent if one ignores the fact that 'exploit' has a much more pejorative connotation and implies an unfair relationship.

My question would be: Do you think the workers would prefer to be unemployexploited?

Police Find Drugs in Raid of Vatican Apartment
Vatican police have reportedly raided a Vatican-owned apartment and arrested an aide to one of Pope Francis' key advisers.

Police in late June found widespread drug-use and men engaged in homosexual activity during the bust at the home owned by the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, according to Il Fatto Quotidiano, an Italian newspaper that first reported the incident. Among its duties, the congregation guides the Church's response to clerical sexual abuse cases.

Yeah, that's frankly the kind of story that a Church should be telling, if you buy into organized religion as a method of redemption.

Pope Frank excommunicates the death penalty
The text of the catechism was first set by Pope John Paul II in October 1992, and earlier stated that the death penalty was "an appropriate response to the gravity of certain crimes and an acceptable, albeit extreme, means of safeguarding the common good".

However, the new text says there is "an increasing awareness that the dignity of the person is not lost even after the commission of very serious crimes".
