My 2 cents on the budget crisis:

The Vatican is opposed to contraception; it softened in the 30s on natural methods of contraception, and in the 90s on sexual activity for pleasure -- even if it could not lead to conception. [A return to practices in the 13th century, say.] To put a finer bead on it, papal infallibility as a doctrine (unsupported by scripture) is called into question by the most questionable papal utterances, which have to do with sex, life, disease, and death.

Both church and state are bad at sex, life, disease, and death. If they would just stop trying, and focus on taxing the rich, cutting military spending, eating (inexpensive) vegetables and whole grains, and funding elaborate celebrations with music and poetry... stuff they're good at...
