Was there a 2012 assassination plot against Pope Benedict XVI? - Der Speigel reports the Pope was to be poisoned

German and Polish press reports this morning claim that there was a plot afoot in Rome to poison the then Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI via his food. The original report is carried in Der Spiegel, with the Polish language, Fronda, and Polonia Christiana also carrying reports. Apparently the Bavarian, LKA went to Rome to assist in conducting investigations.

If this is true and he knew about it and this drove him out of Office, then guess what?

He is still the Pope!

Read up on the Western Schism from 1378 to 1417 which weakened the papacy and set the stage for the Reformation. Then tell us how having multiple pretenders to the see of Peter is a really neat idea.
