The road to hell is paved with good intentions...
Paolo Gabrielle, the butler, did it because he wanted to shock and expose corruption in the Church.
Pope Benedict XVI's butler will be tried on an aggravated theft charge over the leaking of hundreds of secret papers from the pope's personal apartment to an Italian journalist, a Vatican spokesman said Monday.He could have just started a blog using a pseudonym, such as Peter Canisius instead. Or is that how he did it?
The butler, Paolo Gabriele, acted out of a desire to combat "evil and corruption everywhere in the Church," according to a prosecutor in the case.
"I was certain that a shock ... would have been healthy to bring the church back onto the right track," the prosecutor, Nicola Piccardi, wrote in a report released Monday by the Vatican. - Source
