Pope Francis may well be the the most open-minded pontiff yet (unless ‘historical drama’ The Borgias is to be believed that is), but it’s doubtful he would have been too happy about the
Best headline you’ll see all week. There are only about 800 official residents of the Vatican which means that these were going to be picked up by one of those 800 people. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to find out that the Vatican has dealings with South American drug distribution as well.

This is pretty infuriating. I can’t imagine there are many Catholics out there that don’t feel completely ashamed of the Vatican. Excerpt below:
Feb. 16, 2013 Late breaking news on the real reason why Pope Benedict XVI quit the job as Pope is centered around the fact that he was going to be charged for crimes against humanity by shielding pedophile priests in the RC church.
A statement given to Reuters reveals that the Church has decided to grant Joseph Ratzinger immunity against any and all charges involving his protection of known sex offenders.
As a high ranking member of the Catholic Church, Ratzinger knew priests who habitually were reported as sex offenders with children and shipped them to other parishes where they continued raping children.
Even after becoming a Pope as well he protected priests by denying criminal charges.
When he was an archbishop, J. Ratzinger knowingly and willingly protected the criminal priests and thereby avoiding legal and lawful charges against them. Now the church is willfully breaking the law by giving him sanctuary against the law.
In a statement to the press today, the Vatican announced that:
It will give Joseph Ratzinger, formerly Pope Benedict XVI a permanent residency in the Vatican, which gives him legal immunity to any charges against him.
The entire world is wondering why a Pope would consider such drastic action as quitting while still in the papacy, since historically Pope’s usually die in office.
In a report the church officials indicate they are offering Ratzinger legal protection in connection with any charges that he may have protected known sexual abusers in the priesthood around the world. The Church sources indicates:
“His continued presence in the Vatican is necessary, otherwise he might be defenseless”. By this statement we gather that if Ratzinger steps outside the Vatican perimeter he could be legally arrested and brought to trial for his criminal cover ups. The Roman Catholic Church is basically admitting the former Pope is guilty, they know it and further more they are giving him cover against the authorities.

Apparently the article from yesterday was only the tip of the iceberg so to speak. The more I consider this the more I am thinking that a direct confrontation like this is not going to work in the way Anonymous most likely intends. If anything it is going to rally the “soldier of Christianity” when they perceive an actual attack going on against them. We will not move people away from religion through force, it must be something people come to on their own and that is the trend we are showing. Yet a call for an “attack” against Christianity may make many people dig in even deeper to prepare for the upcoming “war”. I absolutely appreciate what Anonymous is attempting to do but I honestly don’t think it is the best way to approach the topic.
