Allegations of Corruption in Francis' Papacy of Mercy
Edit: considering all of the deceit and humbug of the Synod, how could there be anything but corruption?
Also, the corruption at Vatican bank had already been largely cleared up under Ettore Tedesci, who's been recently exhonerated, by the way.
How could a papacy which actively honors the largest of pornography distributors in Germany, and people like Marx, who assigned a sexual predator to parish work, be anything but corrupt?

VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican is bracing for more allegations of financial wrongdoing and mismanagement with the publication next week of two books that underscore the challenges Pope Francis is facing to reform the Holy See.
Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi's "Merchants in the Temple" follows his blockbuster 2012 book, "His Holiness," based on confidential papal correspondence detailing corruption and political intrigue in the Vatican. The so-called Vatileaks scandal that ensued resulted in the conviction of Pope Benedict XVI's butler for leaking the documents, and some say, to Benedict's historic resignation.
Italian journalist Emiliano Fittipaldi is releasing "Avarice: Documents Revealing Wealth, Scandals and Secrets of Francis' Church." Fittipaldi writes for L'Espresso newsweekly, which has published some of the most damaging leaks of Francis' papacy, including most recently the letter by 13 cardinals warning Francis about his family synod.
