    #1
    lmao... so now, in the latest development; according to the italian media (don't laugh), the pope has resigned because within the prelate exists a fabulous homosexual cabal.

    in response to this 'outrageous' accusation, the vatican secretariat of state had this to say in a statement:

    "It is deplorable that as we draw closer to the time of the beginning of the conclave … that there be a widespread distribution of often unverified, unverifiable or completely false stories."

    no shit...

    Unfortunately, the most shocking stories about the Catholic church have turned out to be true.

    Quote:Britain's top Catholic cleric resigns, won't elect new pope

    LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's most senior Roman Catholic cleric resigned on Monday following allegations he behaved in an inappropriate way with priests, and said he would not take part in the election of Pope Benedict's replacement.

    Cardinal Keith O'Brien said he had tendered his resignation some months ago, ahead of his 75th birthday in March and because he was suffering from "indifferent health".

    The Vatican said the pope, who steps down on Thursday, had accepted O'Brien's resignation as archbishop of St. Andrews and Edinburgh.

    O'Brien, an outspoken opponent of gay marriage, has been reported to the Vatican over allegations of inappropriate behavior stretching back 30 years, according to Britain's Observer newspaper.

    The cardinal, who last week advocated allowing Catholic priests to marry as many found it difficult to cope with celibacy, rejected the allegations and was seeking legal advice, his spokesman said.1

    "Looking back over my years of ministry: For any good I have been able to do, I thank God. For any failures, I apologize to all whom I have offended," O'Brien said in a statement, which made no reference to the recent allegations.

    He said he would not attend the election next month of a new pope, saying: "I do not wish media attention in Rome to be focused on me - but rather on Pope Benedict XVI and on his successor."

    The Observer, which gave little detail on the claims, said three priests and a former priest, from a Scottish diocese, had complained over incidents dating back to 1980.

    One said the cardinal formed an "inappropriate relationship" with him while another complained of unwanted behavior by O'Brien after a late-night drinking session.

    Last year, O'Brien's comments labeling gay marriage a "grotesque subversion" landed him with a "Bigot of the Year" award from British gay rights group Stonewall.

    Perpetuating a made up view of history under the guise of religion is one thing.
    That is covered under religious freedom.

    But sheltering thousands of pedophiles and perverts wearing roman collars, and covering up their offenses, that is something else.
    That is an organized crime. Religious freedom does not cover that.

    To top it all off, the Catholic church has a very serious money laundering reputation.
    Under EU banking laws, the church no longer qualifies to participate in credit card payment processing.
