Why the pope quit (maybe)

If this is true, the pope quit his job to escape justice. Wouldn't surprise me.
Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger, has scheduled a meeting with Italian President Giorgio Napolitano for Saturday, February 23 to discuss securing protection and immunity from prosecution from the Italian government, according to Italian media sources.

Ratzinger’s meeting follows upon the apparent receipt by the Vatican of a diplomatic note from an undisclosed European government on February 4, stating its intention to issue an arrest warrant for Ratzinger, who resigned from his pontificate less than a week later.
Ratzinger orchestrated the hiding of rapist priests, thus sheltering them from justice. He is the person most responsible for the pedophilia scandal. The man belongs in prison. What a fitting end that would be for this pope.

On the other hand, I found this on Ed Brayton's blog and he suggests we take this news with a grain of salt. He thinks it might be one of those citizen's-arrest type things. But we can still hope it's real.
