Your Holiness, the Vatican and the Church is in dire need of spring cleaning

The Vatican has been hit with another crisis, this time relating to a Senior Vatican cleric involved in a purported plot to smuggle millions of Euros into Italy from Switzerland.  The arrested cleric, Monsignor Nunzio Scarano believed he could act with impunity due to his connections with the Vatican Bank.

 It is this culture of being able to carry out illegal activities with impunity that has lead to numerous cover-ups with regard to child abuse, corruption and criminal activity within the church and the Vatican Bank. Unfortunately, even with the Vatican Bank, problems of this nature are nothing new. For example, the bank’s governor in the 1980s, Archbishop Paul Marcinkus, was indicted over his involvement with the collapse of Italy’s largest private bank, Banco Ambrosiano, which was owned in part by the Vatican Bank.

 One important question to be asked is who maintains accounts at the Vatican Bank? On paper, only priests, catholic institutions employees of the Vatican City State and diplomats accredited to the Holy See are allowed to hold accounts at Vatican Bank, formally known as the Institute for Works of Religion (IOR). However, it is alleged that Italian politicians and organized crime figures may also have accounts at the Bank.

 All current and future inquiries should be transparent to the public, and those convicted should be dealt with according to the law “”…” Some may argue against this. However, as spiritual leaders to almost a quarter of humanity, the church and its leaders are accountable to a higher standard, and law breakers should be dealt with according to the law. With regard to the arrest of  Monsignor Nunzio Scarano, the Vatican spokesman, Father Federico Lombardi, promised “full collaboration” with Italian justice authorities.

 The Vatican Bank should be brought under the purview of normal international banking rules. If it functions as a bank, then it should be treated as a bank.

 Your Holiness, you have your work cut out for you. Hopefully, you have a big broom with you, as the rot has to go. Crimes and sins of the past cannot be undone, but they should be prevented and dealt with in the future.

    Ananda,

    I did suspect it.

    Now I’m certain. Putin is an undercover US booty licker. Nothing more. Now I see more evidence.

    Putin was also controlling Medvedev.

    e.g. Iran – what a let down! Russia supported USA to put sanctions in Iran.
    e.g. Libya – Putin allowed USA destroy Libya
    e.g. Syria – Putin FAILED to supply S-300 missiles despite BS talk
    e.g. Kosovo – despite BS talk Putin let down Serbia
    e.g. Palestine – BS promises of Putin to establish Palestine only fooled the foolish mullahs and ballahs. Putin fears Israel too!!
    e.g. North Korea – now Putin tries to DISARM North Korea so that USA cab wipe that dirt out!!
    e.g. Until 2012 Russia had more nuclear weapons than REST OF THE WORLD COMBINED. But now the Russian nuclear weapons numbers are LOWER than the rest of the world combined.

    Putin = Pussy Riot (the banned music group banned by Putin).
