Zombie Pope

Father of the living and undead.

Imagine the benefits of an undead Pope:
1. Can remain in office indefinitely.
2. He can be seen as liberal or conservative while avoiding any embarrassing pronouncements moving the church in either direction, ensuring rock-solid grounding in the church's past while moving them fearlessly into the future.
3. More Christlike than any other pope in the capacity of being undead.
4. Can promote peace and understanding between the living and dead.
5. At least as understandable in speech as John Paul II.
6. His guidance can be seen as predictable and steady, like Peter, something like Rentishams applied to religion.

While some in the church have issued reservations about having an undead, soulless ghoul as the head of the church and vicar of Christ, we're confident that he will work his way into the hearts and minds of the people in time.

       I realized I missed an opportunity with the lightning strike. This really should've been Frankenstein's Pope.

       I'm expecting to see one in Rentisham's Waxworks Museum.
