Vatican defends pope in US sex-abuse lawsuit


Dragged deeper than ever before into the clerical sex abuse scandal, the Vatican is launching a legal defense that the church hopes will shield the pope from a lawsuit in Kentucky seeking to have him deposed.

In court documents obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, Vatican lawyers map out a three-pronged defense seeking to dismiss the suit before Benedict XVI can be questioned or secret documents subpoenaed.

LOL As a head of state, he should be chrged with crimes against humanity for allowing priests to rape thousands of children. After all this time and billions the Vatican paid out to some of those attacked, he says it's just "petty gossip". Guantanamo is too good for him and his raping brothers.

I was thinking about some of the "inquisition water-boarders" employed there.
