image for Pope Francis Expels Stanford Cardinal: Appoints "Tree" To Spearhead Reform
Praying For Tree

BILLINGSGATE POST - In his short homily this past Sunday, Pope Francis addressed the problem of secularity in the world today. As much as admitting that the Catholic Church was somewhat to blame for this growing problem, he specifically put the Stanford Cardinal in his sights when he said that, "He would start at the top in ridding the Church of its meandering clergy, especially those who work closely with our youth."

Stanford athletic teams were known as the "Indians" from 1930-72. The Indian symbol was dropped in 1972 following meetings between Stanford native American students and the Stanford president. In 1981, in consort with the Vatican, the Cardinal officially took over the duties of the Indians and enlisted the "Tree" as team mascot.

The "Tree," is an official member of the Stanford band. Known for remaining unbent by the strife and immorality that symbolized the reign of the former Cardinal, much is expected from this sturdy arbor as he takes over the duties of the former Cardinal.

VIVA La Tree!
