Benedict's Dream
...Famously known as "God's Rottweiler" before his election in 2005, Benedict fought against the spread of materialist values in society and strongly opposed any relaxation of the church's traditional strictures against contraception, homosexual acts or women priests.
His eight years in office were overshadowed by scandals ranging from the sexual abuse of children by priests to the arrest of his own butler for stealing confidential papal documents in the so-called "Vatileaks" affair....

It is tragically ironic that Benedict fought against certain trends in society, only to have his own brothers and associates who were aligned with him turn out to be fatally flawed themselves in new and different ways.

How to fight against the spread of materialism, for example,  when one's brothers in arms are actively "fragging" you?
