Vatican in chaos after pope's butler arrested for leaks, bank president ousted

Full story: The Washington Post

The detention of butler Paolo Gabriele, one of the few members of the papal household, capped one of the most convulsive weeks in recent Vatican history and threw the Holy See into chaos as it enters a critical phase in its efforts to show the world it's serious about complying with international norms on financial transparency.

That's bad. It's so unfortunate that so much scandal surrounds the Vatican.

25 years ago no catholic would ever believe any priest/bishop could harm a child, and the rest of the clergy lie and coverup these criminal sins. Now everything is out in the open.

We now know sexual abuse by clergy has gone on for the 1700 years the church has been in existance.

2 recent bouts of vatican money laundering scandals, sex abuse scandals, 2 investigations of 47,000 nuns in america, and now "the butler did it"

Everyday more fence sitting catholics fall off, and more conservative catholics put themselves on the fence.

It will be decades before all the dust clears in these scandals, leaks and investigations and the church leaders have no one to blame but themselves.

KARMA is alive and well.
