Sorry to keep harping on these questions you refuse to answer, exposing yourself as an ignoraNus, but here it goes again:
Why did prominent religious orders send Sauniere money - ostensibly for masses - in amounts contravening canon law?
Why send money to Sauniere, in the first place, rather than priests at known shrines or other places, particularly in such large and illicit amounts?
Read The Rise and find out... Educate yourself... Oh, and dig a little bit deeper into theology to find out what it is you so ignorantly call "necrophilia".
You bloody senile old fool - these questions have all been answered and that rubbish book about Sauniere and necrophilia is only for worth throwing down the garden.
Ya know 'roger', I gotta side with palsy on this one 'cuz ya stepped in to a pile of yer own BS. 'roger', you know that when it comes to things French, and Canon Law, Cardinal Lefevbre of I did it my way fame, had a lot of froggy bishops backing him up.
The Vatican has never been able to rein in renegade French Bishops, long before the Avignon caper. Canon Law exists where it is promulgated and enforced. There was always a Inquisition function since Albigensian times. Its used only against Templars + Cathari. Perhaps ya can throw the Huguenots in as well.
There has been an undercurrent of latent gnosticism in France for 2,000 years. This ain't no recent thing 'roger'. The only time the Vatican steps in with an Inquisition is when a head of state requests it. When was the last time Cardinal Ratzinger unleashed his Inquisition on France, where its sorely needed. This voodoo-like cult of the dead of yer is what I ref to, throw in La Sanch 'cuz its not really very Churchy, is it?
Do ya think a Jew PM like Sarkozy wants to upset his control levers? He ain't that dumb, neither was Chirac + Mitterand.
Ya got so many renegade French Bishops there who have mastered the nod + wink gesture, their behavior in WW2 speaks for itself. These Bishops always get a cut of the action, that's how they survive. They need money to grease palms. Sauniere got in trouble with Billard's successor 'cuz he obviously didn't get as much as Billard, otherwise, he would have left Sauniere alone to conduct biz as usual.
Billard's successor shot himself in the foot on that one, no? He lost out as well as Sauniere. Where did all the mass requests go to 'roger'? ya never said jack shit about that development. Overnight all came to a schreeching halt, how come? Who put the stop payment signal?
Ya forget the quintessential situation here 'roger', we're dealing with perfidious froggies. No amount of yer preachin' to the galleries about Canon Law, or what constitutes a Church sanctioned penitence rite-ritual. Do ya wanna go back to the good ole days of bare feet, sack-cloth + ashes?
Ya can't have it both ways with yer bAnal screed 'roger(is yer nether eye out of focus? and all ya get is a shitty outlook?...jest askin'), it ain't gonna work. Ike deliberately delayed his book ( most likely on the suggestion from gly-conjob), as I see it, 'cuz Ike had to work around all the objections raised on the forum. His text would have been pilloried + skewered as palsy sez 'cuz its a flawed concept.
