Well this does not come as a surprise for me, since Vatican is known to be one of the worlds biggest "investors" in certain "investments", which have a wide range. But there should be certain limits, since the Catholic bank does represent the Catholic church and it should not invest in areas, which they claim to be sinfull. Kind of hypocritical, but that would not be the first time when talking about organized religion. Well at least the "apologised"...
