I just watched a program on AHC network that Mussolini is the dictator that gave the Vatican it's sovereignty if they would back his fascist regime. It's also a historical fact that the Vatican is the first country to sign a treaty with Hitler. In addition, it was discovered that the Vatican provided many of the top Nazi war criminals to escape prosecution. Today the Vatican still refuses to produce many documents from that era.
This is the kind of crap that makes me sick about religious institutions. They hold such power over people and are run by greedy old white men who do horrible things to hold onto power. Such hypocrites!
