The butler gave the reporter photocopies of personal papers that belonged to the pope as well as letters from Monsignor Carlo Maria Vigano, who was an investigator of Vatican corruption. The letters were a big deal because Vigano expressed that "he felt he was being slandered and sidelined from the inside." As a direct result, Vigano was transferred of the case.

The information Nuzzi recovered created a book that showed the public Vatican corruption. Paolo Gabriele, the butler, was allegedly giving information to help the pope by exposing the bad in the Vatican. He was held in Vatican custody for eighteen months, but eventually the pope pardoned him and gave him a job in a hospital.

Denial is taking place within the Vatican. Specifically the accusations of homosexuality within the church are being denied. They will not admit to the reports let out by Nuzzi, or acknowledge it.

50 Years Ago, Vatican II Changed The Catholic Church -- And The World

50 Years Ago, Vatican II Changed The Catholic Church -- And The World | Aspect 3:  Scandal | Scoop.it

Bishop Aymond also said "The church, by its teaching an dby its discipleship, has something to say to the world. At the same time, the world is saying something to the church. We can't just say we're not gonig to be involved in these conversations. As the church, we have to be in conversation with others who agree and disagree with us." This was specifically speaking of the Catholic Church's antagonism about contrary religious beliefs. People of the Catholic faith could not even go to another denomination's church.

Vatican II also changed the opinion of the Catholic Church on Judaism. With the Vatican II came the acceptance of the Jewish roots to God. Without this change, perhaps the Catholic Church would have stuck with the belief that "Jews were stigmatized as the people who killed Jesus Christ."
Sydney Pribanic's comment, March 15, 2013 10:07 AM
Although the Vatican II was revolutionary, people thought there was not enough done about the rankings of women in the church. The "Vatican orthodoxy watchdog" investigated a group of nuns saying that the nuns were against the church's word and supporting "radical feminist themes." According to a theologist at Notre Dame Seminary (Baglow), "Vatican II isn't about replacing what the church is. It's about helping it be more vitally what God intended it to be in the first place."

There is an overwhelming percentage of Catholics who think the bishops have not delt with the abuse scandal correctly. Sixty-seven percent of Catholics believe the biships have done either a fair or poor job of addressing sex abuse scandal.
Sydney Pribanic's comment, March 29, 2013 10:10 AM
Sixty-one percent of millennial Catholics, those born after 1981, also hold the belief that the bishops have not handled sex scandal in the appropriate way. Even out of weekly Catholic mass attendees, a majority of sixty-one percent are not in favor of the bishops.
Sydney Pribanic's comment, March 29, 2013 10:17 AM
Credibility of leaders of the church is also being questioned by many Catholics. About eighty percent of Catholic's are of the opinion that church leaders who spoke out about "social or political issues" have lost credibility. A slightly lower seventy-five percent believe that the priests are not longer able to "meet spiritual and pastoral needs of their parishioners" as a direct result of the sexual abuse scandal.

Weekly Pope Benedict XVI would hold meetings to evaluate the sexual abuse cases. A large number of these cases were from the United States. Greg Erlandson and Matthew Bunson wrote a book about it: "Pope Benedict XVI and the Sexual Abuse Crisis: Working for Reform and Renewal." In this book they said that the Pope "arguably was probably the most knowledgeable man on the abuse crisis."
Sydney Pribanic's comment, March 15, 2013 10:26 AM
However, some people believe that Pope Benedict XVI did not do enough. These people believed that he needed to reprimand bishops who helped with scandal cover-ups and did not worry enough about the abused. One specific opposer of the last Pope's efforts is David Clohessy, who is the executive director of the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests. He said "When forced to, he talks about the crimes but ignores the cover-ups...He has vast powers and he's done very little to make a difference."
Sydney Pribanic's comment, March 15, 2013 10:31 AM
A study has been conducted showing just how many abuse scandals there are in the United States today. The U.S. Converence of Catholic Bishops' Office of Child and Youth Protection and Independant Studies found that over 6,100 priests have been accused of abuse since 1950, there have been more than 16,000 victims, and the total bill from 2004-2011 has been $2.5 billion because of victim therapy bills, attorney fees, and costs to care for priests pulled out of the ministry.

La Repubblica is an online news source. From this source, it has been gathered important information from the recent Vatileaks. Important officials of the church were being black mailed. They called the black mailers people "whith whom they had 'ties of worldly nature.'" The news source did not specifically state the sins of the officials. However, ties were drawn to the "Non fornicare, non rubare," "thou shalt not commit adultory," and "thou shalt not steal" commandments.
