A poisonous Pentecost for the Pope


www.theglobeandmail.com

The Vatican faces a widening scandal that in one short week has seen the butler of Pope Benedict XVI arrested, the president of its bank unceremoniously dismissed and the publication of a new book alleging conspiracies among cardinals.

It was a poisonous Pentecost Sunday for the Pope, who likely had the tumultuous events of the past week on his mind as he celebrated a mass in St. Peter’s Basilica on the day regarded as the birthday of the church.

The butler did it! He has spilled the beans on the Pope, cardinals, et al... There is a new book coming out.. This should be a good new source of information... and of course he was arrested... It looks like the internet has been a good tool for opening up all information sources giving few places to hide for those with secrets...

Poor, poor Mr. pope. That butler has been with him for a long time, what else could he have stolen?

"The leaked documents included letters by an archbishop who was transferred to Washington after blowing the whistle on what he saw as a web of corruption and cronyism, a memo that put a number of cardinals in a bad light, and documents alleging internal conflicts about the Vatican bank. "

i know... its absolutely sickening that poor mister popes misdeeds are coming to light
people should just leave him alone
dont they know hes infallible and speaks directly with god
they are just small people unable to see the big picture
he is doing the work of god after all and who are we to try to understand the ways of god

What misdeeds are you referring to? Have you seen any documents? Do you have information that you can share with us? Or are you just trying to sound clever?

"New book coming out...."

It says it all doesn't it? I'm sick to my guts of new books coming out.
Spill it all out on the web. Be done with it.

Dump it, Padre! You opportunist little weasel. Of the Vatican ilk, that's for sure.

This has been going on since that particular church was established. Infighting, perversion, greed, and more. I don't know why anyone would be surprised.......

Waiting like a stalking butler,
whom upon the finger rests,
murder now the path of must we
...just because the sun is full...

Why would a person be arrested and "sensitive" materials be recovered regarding these "holy" men? Should "sensitive materials even exist in the first place?
Are they not the most highly and exhalted of Catholics? The direct link to god? The men who tell everyone else how to act? Are they not beyond scandal, deceit, lies, and dirty secrets?
Could their position and pious personas all be a load of crap?
Heaven forbid!

So the answer is no then isn't it? You have nothing to add but tittle tattle and juvenile gossip.
