Vatican history reveals bloody, corrupt battles for church power
RATZINGER (OR, BENEDICT XVI) UPDATE:
Powerful Cardinal in Vatican Accused of Sexual Abuse Cover-Up
"He was appointed by the pope to investigate the entire sex abuse scandal in the church in recent days. But when approached by ABCNEWS in Rome last week with questions of allegations against Maciel, Ratzinger became visibly upset and actually slapped this reporter's hand."That's the definition of conservatism, alright: resistance to change. Hang on to those medeival values.
