This House Would revoke the diplomatic immunity of the Pope

As head of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, feared successors to the Inquisition, the Pope was responsible for enforcing order in the Catholic Church. The Pope's critics say he used his time in office to protect alleged abusers (and the public image of the catholic church) rather than abuse victims.

The Pope's supporters respond that as a head of the Vatican City state he has immunity from foreign prosecutions. To what extent should the pope be held to account for the actions of his subordinates? You decide.

We are proud members of the London Debating Hub and we highly recommend you keep an eye out for all the other amazing events promoted on this page if you are interested in speaking your mind on subjects you care about and meeting other like-minded people.
