  1. And in subjects the Holy Father won’t cover:

    Ettore Gotti Tedeschi feared for his life when he was ousted as head of the Vatican bank after a vote of no confidence May 24.

    The 67-year-old Italian was brought in by the pope’s secretary of state, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, in 2009 with a mandate to turn the troubled bank around and help “facilitate transparency” with an eye toward quashing rumors that the bank was a den of iniquity. The Vatican had hoped that through Gotti Tedeschi’s guidance, the tiny city-state could finally earn a coveted spot on the global Financial Action Task Force “white list” of states whose financial practices can be trusted.

    I find this whole Vatican Bank thing fascinating, first the grotesque hypocrisy of it, when Jesus was beating the money lenders do you think he imagined that one day there would be a bank in his church?
    That and these scandals happen ALL THE TIME! Every 10 years these things break out, in the 60s and 70s it got more media play but I guess the whole child abuse thing makes it look pretty tame.

    I find it hysterical that y’all look to such an organization for moral and ethical guidance when they clearly can’t even manage themselves.

    A blithering rambling idiot Troll!!

  3. Yeah, that post was pretty Trolly but it’s just that Catholics sites like this tend to avoid the negatives in the news, stuff like this:

    The Vatican said Monday it “truly regrets” the publication of a letter from a psychotherapist detailing the mental health of the Vatican’s recently ousted bank chief, as yet another Holy See document leak exposes the unseemly side of the Catholic Church’s governance.

    See, my point is it’s hard to reconcile the Church that Jesus would build if he were real with the Church we do have that pulls stunts like the above.

    Is that really what Jesus would do?

    Really?
