Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

I can only imagine the death threats and imprecations on DU and other lib/prog fora against the Pope.
