Is there a smoking gun in the Vatican?

I don’t understand:  is being pope just another job? I hear one rumor that the pope is resigning because the Catholic problem with pedophile priests might uncover evidence that, despite being the emissary of god on earth, the pope is not infallible. I wonder what god thinks about all this?

With all the power the pope wields over the catholic world, why is it that he doesn’t solve the problem with violence and guns just by making a speech? Or is Ratzinger a supporter of the NRA?
