The German fake-news outlet Bild.de (June 22) reports that Georg and Joseph Ratzinger were too weak to hug each other.
The tabloid wrote that Georg is bedridden and cannot get up. The two brothers pressed each other’s hands knowing that it was likely the last time they see each other on earth.
On the days before, their final words were: “Servus Joseph” and “Servus Georg” respectively. The greeting "servus" is Bavarian for "hello" or "hi."
Benedict XVI flew back to Rome on Monday.
No matter what Benedict does, Conspiracy Land has an evil explanation all lined up. Like so: Benedict stays in the Vatican? "He's a prisoner! He can't go anywhere! He can't see anyone!". Benedict takes trip to visit his brother? "Get the pope completely out of the Vatican, hope he dies..." Benedict finishes his trip? He was "Forced by the Satanists back into imprisonment."
