A deeply conflicted man is devoted to the Pope and the Vatican, yet horrified by the corruption he sees within this tiny theocratic city state. He leaks documents that seem to prove the corruption. He is jailed. After months of stewing in the hole, the Pope pardons him.
Just a few questions, here:
Why is the corruption in the Vatican not the story here? Why is the Pope in a position to "pardon" someone for exposing that corruption? Why was this whistleblower not protected?
Oh right... the infalliability of God's representative on Earth, who can not be shown to be tainted by corruption, knowingly or not.
