Default The undisputed champions of corruption at it again...

Vatican Bank mired in laundering scandal - Yahoo! News

When it comes to organizational corruption, everyone else are amateurs.

It may have. Hell, it's happened so many times now that I don't think anyone can keep track of it anymore!

I was going to post a list but it would literally not fit... it shows the mullas of Iran and the so called leaders stealing billions (like $66 Billion) from the people and moving it to international banks throughout the World - from South Africa to Dubai; Turkey to Switzerland, Germany to Beruit, and Barclays Bank in the United Kingdom to the Alnakhl Corporation!

Man, i truly hate all religions equally

My favorite part of the Catholic church's failings is that they have had to sell off churches. I know of two local design firms that bought an old church to use as their office. Here's one. The Embassy ? Moosylvania Marketing ? The Great State of Design

Far more gross than the finical corruption....sited from article above

"The new allegations of financial impropriety could not come at a worse time for the Vatican, already hit by revelations that it sheltered pedophile priests."

Yeah I agree organized religion is the source of many of the world's problems!

The only thing I would caution is not to think of this as only a catholic problem. Protestant (especially Anglican) schools have had these issues as well, as well as 'young peoples groups' run by volunteer church members. There are more reports of this happening in catholic schools and churches simply because there are more catholic schools and churches.

Agreed. Defiantly the case in my home town. The Methodist have their issues to.
