Moneyval expected to give Vatican Bank a passing grade:

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:d_3ADuhyG28J:mail.ncronline.org/printpdf/blogs/ncr-today/report-vatican-set-pass-transparency-test+moneyval+july+4&cd=21&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

In an answer to the prayers of Catholics worldwide, Moneyval is expected to give the Vatican Bank (fittingly on July 4) a barely passing score of 8 out of 16. In layman's language, vaguely clean enough to do business.

The Vatican's money laundering appears to be winding down. Needless to say, to no one's surprise, records of past transactions will remain secret.

1. Just more grist for your screenplay, dimbear.

I still haven't decided who I want to be, but I'm thinking about a role as a woman who disguises herself as a man in order to infiltrate the highest ranks of the Vatican.

Might even make it to pope.

What do you think?

2. Think back over the way the Pope Joan story ends up.

Not pretty at all.

The Vatican hasn't been very kind to powerful women lately, either. But what's true is "they need some powerful women."


Edit: Nancy Pelosi would be the obvious choice.
