The Butler Did It!


A Vatican tribunal has thrown out some evidence gathered in the investigation of the pope’s butler, who is accused of stealing the pope’s papers and passing them off to a journalist in the worst security breach in the Vatican’s recent history….Gabriele faces up to four years in prison if he is convicted of aggravated theft. He has already confessed, saying he leaked the documents to shed light on what he called the `’evil and corruption” in the church, and asked to be pardoned by the pope.

I think we all know these letters have something to do with the Catholic Church sex abuse scandals. Unfortunately Vatican City is a sovereign nation run by the Catholic Church, so even tho he’s a whistle blower, he’s a whistle blower against the Pope, and he won’t see any leniency from that.

    He’ll get a much lighter sentence than he would have a thousand years ago.

    I’m torn by this one. I really did think it was Col. Custard, in the drawing room, with a candlestick.
