Michael is a better Catholic than Mussolini -- the man who tempted the RCC with the power of diplomatic immunity and a bank.<quoted text>
Michael is? Why on Earth would an Atheist try and save the RCC?
He hates them just like you and everybody else....Their teachings conflict with your lifestyles, you wanna make em go away.
The Vatican took the bait -- and the rest is history.
If Michael had been there, the Vatican would not be using their diplomatic immunity to deflect investigations into wide-spread child abuse at Catholic Schools for the Deaf -- on two Continents.
Imagine the Vatican lying about such a thing.
Ireland was so outraged, the government broke diplomatic relations to wake the old fools up.
Michael could have led the Church down a better path, so why do you attack him and not Mussolini?
