    The Vatican is just crooked (or bent might be a better word).

      organisation that makes a career of raping our children, then spending millions, if not billions, to cover it up...what more do we need in a threat?

      This subject is particularly raw for me now, as I recently watched the most excellent HBO documentary, Mea Maxima Culpa about how the Vatican has known...for freakin' centuries....about the abuse of children, and done nothing to stop it.  Every Pope, for hundreds of years, and this bastard in particular, has known what was going on.

      They protected the Church, not the children.

      They can all burn in hell.

      Every decent priest and nun I've ever known, and they number in the hundreds, has been made to suffer for what the hierarchy has failed to to.  Those who tried to help were shut down and cut off.  I had some excellent, caring teachers, and I bitterly resent that they were tarred with the same brush as the pedophiles and their accomplices.  That said, the rest?

      They can all burn in hell.

      We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

        Just because something is emotionally fraught does not make it equivalent to threats to launch missiles and blow up cities.

          the same as a threat of missile launches.  But I do consider what the Vatican has done, for centuries, to be a very real threat to the well-being of generations of children.

          Sorry if I wasn't clear enough.
