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.
