by John R. Betzler Once again John Betzler takes up his vitriolic pen and gives us his sardonic take on Catholicism. He not only condemns the hierarchy for cynically exploiting the ignorance of their parishioners for financial gain, but he suggests that the monetary demands the church makes may be covering up an accounting scandal of Enron-like proportions. He chides the Vatican for condoning priestly sexual abuse, and infers that the compensation of the victims may be contributing to the papacys fiscal problems.
