Sex abuse scandals in the Roman Catholic Church are proof that that "the Devil is at work inside the Vatican", according to the Holy See's chief exorcist.
Father Gabriele Amorth, 85, who has been the Vatican's chief exorcist for 25 years and says he has dealt with 70,000 cases of demonic possession, said that the consequences of satanic infiltration included power struggles at the Vatican as well as "cardinals who do not believe in Jesus, and bishops who are linked to the Demon".

The Devil Made Them Do It
For all this time I stupidly thought that it was the Catholic Church's outright disdain for homosexuals, their beliefs that Priests (or gays) should not be married, and their attempts to sweep under the rug known instances of Priest abuses against children that led to the ever increasing number of child abuse atrocities. The Vatican's "chief exorcist" sets me straight.
