The Roman Catholic Hierarchy is an annotated ranked list maintained at the Vatican for the purpose of adjudicating serious disputes between practicing Catholic parties.

edit History

The Hierarchy was created in 666 by Pope Inconspicuous XIII in response to popular demand. It replaced the former system of accumulated hitpoints, which was widely blamed for promoting numerous assassination attempts of beloved clergy members. The system has gone through several revisions over the intervening centuries, the most drastic being during the Council of Vatican 2, when female nuns were included for the first time. The Council of Vatican also dictates trough arcane ritual the distribution of the ceremonial head gear. It is a custom that most of the catholic power be given to the member wearing the silliest hat. Roman Catholic Hierarchy is designed in such a way to put the faithful as far away from God as possible. This practice is referred to by the Clergy as "long-dickin".

edit Utilization

Upon induction into the Catholic Church clergy, the initiate is immediately assigned a numerical rank, which is worn on the back of the vestments as a large stylized Roman numeral in gold-trimmed blue on a white background (with the sole exception of Cardinals (solid red on yellow)). In the event that any two or more Catholic officials become embroiled in a finer point on purely theological matters, the nearest nearby Catholic who ranks at least one level higher than all of them is immediately summoned, who then arbitrarily decides the question between the original disputants. After the decision is reached, the loser (or losers) is immediately docked one full level in rank, whilst the winner may choose between either a weekend indulgence in sunny Acapulco, or a notarized chit (of which five are required to gain a rank).

Reserved seating and privileged parking spaces in any Catholic church building are wholly determined by the hierarchy. Violators of the rules are subject to automatic and painful excommunication (transmitted over geosynchronous satellites by tiny radio emitter/receivers embedded in every clergy member's electronic collar).
