Seen in The Times, May 8, 2006:
“Pope Benedict XVI denounced careerism in the priesthood, which he defined as ‘an attempt to get to the top, to procure oneself a position through the Church, in order to serve oneself, not to serve [others]’.”

    Also, the Venerable Society of Bears denounced shitting in the woods.
