Vatican Claims the Devil is Trying to Destabilize it

Kind of an amusing article here.  Look, I’m not trying to step on anyone’s religious toes.  I don’t care what anyone believes about spirituality.  That is your business.  However, what I will say is that organized religious institutions (I don’t care what religion) are big, powerful bureaucracies who need to have their feet held to the fire just like any other similarly large institutions.  It is those within the specific religions themselves that need to keep their own institutions in line, rather than just defending them instinctively as “their team.”  Humans run these things and humans are fallible.
