Sure, it may be far-fetched, but as Maher explains, a powerful woman at the top could be just what the Catholic Church needs:
"Fact is, that any enterprise that excludes women almost always descends into sexual deviancy... Whether it's the Boy Scouts, the Penn State locker room or on Wall Street, sooner later a bunch of innocent folks get fucked. Show me any culture that's traditionally hostile to women and I will show a culture that is screwed up."
And if Hillary doesn't work out, no problem. Maher's got at least two more PERFECT ideas for papal successors.
