Clay, of course Mikey is once again presenting his balanced approach and no crime has been proven. Allegations are allegations. I can dig up all kind of Proven Protestant scandals that involve billions but its of no account. Whenever there is lots of money it is easy to fall prey. Ananias and Saphira lied and they paid a price. I am content that the Vatican is taking great measures to limit abuse as much as possible, The commission set up to deal specifically with prevention is rarely mentioned, and it doesnt mean it will never happen. Oddly enough many Americans do not seem to care that trillions are unaccounted for by the Fed Reserve, but congressman are very resistant to an audit. Why is that? Most churches are not held accountable nor do they release their financial records to anyone. However since the Vatican has some pretty vast holdings it is good for Catholics and non-catholics to have accountability. However the Vatican does not control the local budget of a parish the Bishop does. Every organization as large as the Catholic church is going to have a few loose canons every now and then, but to argue that corruption will never be found whether on purpose or unknowingly is to be naive of the history of money in general. The various bubbles and bank games that went on is still costing a toll. Yeah I still wish we could all get bonuses larger than many will make in their lifetime for collapsing the econonomy. The finger pointing will never end. Wouldnt it be nice if after the debates the press really dissected the truth of what politicians say? Both Obama and Romney told some whoppers and each of them stood there calling each other liars. However, as Bill Clinton said in an interview with Barbara Walters, "Sometimes the truth is the lie people believe."<quoted text>
Oh no Miguel, I'm never concerned with the 'news stories' you conjure up.
You're old and just discovering the internet. I don't read radical ideological websites for my news anyway.
Do you really think you're noble for doing this?
It ain't news. Its not breaking. Its not shocking.
You should really get a life.
