Whelp, time for another round of pin the jail sentence on the pedo-clergy.

Oh, and also money smuggling in the Vatican. Not the greatest year for being corrupt in ye olde Vatican City, methinks:

Thrown in jail by whom? He's the ruler of a sovereign state.

And to be fair, the current Pope is a helluva lot better than his predecessor and I actually like his disposition.

Unfortunately, some clergy are corrupt and criminal, and the Pope needs to denounce these people, support thorough investigations and stop the covering up and protection of the accused.

Yea, this new guy, I think he's going to do as much good as they'll let him. Something like the Catholic church has an awful lot of momentum though, even a Pope can't make it turn on a dime.

Yeah, I'm surprised we haven't executed Obama for all the crimes committed in his country.

The Vatican is a country, the pope is the head of state with no method of being removed from power besides death or resignation. Almost no pope resigns.

Now if a Muslim country protected pedophiles and basically pulled the stunts the Vatican pulls, sometimes citing religious reasons, I can just imagine the reactions Christians would have.
