Runing for Cover

The old “head of state” defense.  Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Vatican Offers 3 Reasons It’s Not Liable For Abuse

Dragged deeper than ever into the clerical sex abuse scandal, the Vatican is launching a legal defense that it hopes will shield the pope from a lawsuit in Kentucky seeking to have him answer attorneys’ questions under oath.

Court documents obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press show that Vatican lawyers plan to argue that the pope has immunity as head of state, that American bishops who oversaw abusive priests weren’t employees of the Vatican, and that a 1962 document is not the “smoking gun” that provides proof of a cover-up.

Right.  Those bishops were working for the Pillsbury Dough company.

The Vatican is seeking to dismiss the suit before Benedict XVI can be questioned or documents subpoenaed.

I’ll bet.   Wouldn’t want the Pope to be accountable or to have to answer in a court of law.  Mumbling to his invisible friend is much preferable to having to tell the truth under oath.

Lets see how this all turns out.
