The Vatican got Hacked

Anonymous, the hackers, took it down.

In a statement on its Italian-language website, the collective accused the Catholic Church of being responsible for a long list of misdeeds throughout history, including the selling of indulgences in the 16th century and burning heretics during the Inquisition.

“Anonymous decided today to besiege your site in response to the doctrine, to the liturgies, to the absurd and anachronistic concepts that your for-profit organisation spreads around the world.

“This attack is not against the Christian religion or the faithful around the world but against the corrupt Roman Apostolic Church.”

It also accused the Vatican of being “retrograde” in its interfering in Italian domestic affairs.

It is interesting because the ‘Vatican’ can seem to be untouchable, so powerful as to be omnipotent – so it’s nice to see signs of weakness. The Vatican, et al, could use some humility.
