The vatican is in control of billions of dollars in gold and assets

Look at the comments above. Would proof mean anything to anybody here? And what would you accept as proof, his writings?
And is there anyone that you wish to go to Hell? For a moment, I'm stunned.

well.....the next Pope isnt technically the last pope...in my readings and studies of the Popes...
Pope Benedict XVI (Predicts that he would die in early 2012)
the next to rise to power is claimed to be Pope Pius XIII (Peter the Roman) as for seen by Pope Pius X he rises to power during the beginning the Tribulation, its said it will be Cardinal Francis Arinze
He escapes the Vatican during WW3, he and his clergy are captured, clergy is killed in front of him, he is than blinded and dies a Martyr for his religion in 2013
See what happens, 2012 will be a year to remember or another dud

Although the national catholic reporter is clearly an unbiased source.. the things you state dont really go far enough and seem to be a case of talking the talk not walking the walk.
A man in his position has great power and the potential of good he could do is huge, in a influence and power scale his actions are no different from your average person spending 1 hour a year in a soup kitchen.
He has covered up pedophile crimes by paying off the victims and this is known, it doesnt matter if you do it once or one million times, it is still scum.
The vatican is in control of billions of dollars in gold and assets yet do not even use 10% of their power and influence to help the problems they convince followers they are so adament at stopping.
I could go on for ages but the fact is that the pope and vatican are evil
The Catlick Church certainly has its issues, but evil!?!
I suggest you check out the millions that go to the poor via the Church. Or perhaps the thousands of missionaries in Africa, Asia, and elsewhere. Catholic Charities works hard to provide adoptions for abandoned babies.
And of course, the pot lucks. My dear God, the pot lucks!
And Mardi Gras. And St. Patrick's day (My liver would agree with you that those are evil, I guess).
Mardi Gras is the day before Lent begins. A Catholic celebration. You glutton it up before the period of repentence.
