Throw another sin on the bonfire

In another blow to the Holy See, Italian authorities have begun investigating the top two officials at the Vatican bank on suspicion of violating money-laundering rules and have frozen $30 million in the bank’s assets, news reports said Tuesday.

The Vatican, already battered by a scandal over priestly sexual abuse, expressed “puzzlement and amazement” at the allegations and said it was committed to financial transparency.

So… we can add money-laundering to the long laundry list of skills of that cult that former Hitler Youth, Benny-the-Rat possesses: cover-ups, sexual predators, mysogeny, homophobia, sexual repression. Say, isn’t that the GOP platform?

    That $30 million would settle a few pedophile cases. I also remember a scandal in the 70s; some guy wound up hanging from a bridge.

    It’s an understandable mistake.

    They told the Vatican to clean up their problem with paedophile priests, and so Bennie the Rat started laundering money.
