I see it as perfectly normal that someone would be furious about being betrayed by someone that lives and works as close to them as the butler did
with the Pope, I don't see it as a "he has to be involved somehow" situation.
As well as the courts scaling back his 3 year sentence after seeing those documents
The sentence was reduced because he had no criminal records before this case, or so the news sites say.
They have to have seen something that implicates the pope or other high ranking clergy. At lease the pope had to have known these things were
taking place in the Vatican.
Well, that's your opinion that "They have to have seen something that implicates the pope" and that "the pope had to have known these things were
taking place", but I don't think that things must
be as you think. In all hierarchical organisations do you expect the top person to know all
that happens at all levels of the organisation?
If the Pope knew of these things and didn't stop them and his attitude toward this guy, tells me the pope was in the wrong and Not following
The guy has to formally request forgiveness from this MAN (the pope) . Are you kidding me? I don't know what book your reading but that's not

Your third counter is a well known tactic used often in science when people do not want to face the responsibility of answering the
You have presented your opinion, why should I treat it as the truth? I am not the Pope and I don't know a thing about his life, so I cannot present
any evidence that he is or isn't evil. I thought that the people making the accusations were the ones that should provide evidence of what they
Prove to me that for these things the pope is not evil.
You haven't provided any facts that can be countered (is that the right word?), only your opinion, so this can only be a discussion about our own
opinions. As I have said before, I don't know the Pope, so I cannot really say if he is evil or not.
Do it by the catholic bible if you like,( the sole authority of the church) but you cant.
I do not know the Bible by heart (only read the Old Testament once, some years ago), and I don't think that the Bible's definition of what is evil
(if there is one) matters to me, as to me that's just another book.
