"A monumental work of twentieth century capitalism as it was jointly embraced by the Vatican and the United States and those caught up in it. Top-shelf CIA-Vatican intrigue." The Times // Some claim the Vatican Bank had to do with his murder. Others claim his threat to change doctrine that unfairly penalizes the lives of innocent people drove curial cardinals in the clandestine deed. Others claim the threat he was to the capitalistic tenets upon which the United States was founded rallied the CIA to action. Others whisper his sexual orientation led to his demise. 'The Vatican Murders' reveals how each of these played a role in the murder of the youngest pope to die in four hundred years. // When elected he was tabbed a liberal on a few bits which had reached outside Italy. Like the times he had been caught baptizing illegitimate children, to the times he had been caught officiating at funerals of the remarried, to the times he ordered hospitals to admit partners of homosexuals into ICUs, to the time he defended their right to parent children, to the times he defied the contraception ban, to the time he declared "God is the Father. More so, the Mother." // On March 13, 1978, fourteen men sat around a table in a village café in northern Italy. In casual clothes they went unnoticed though one was the Pope and another the Marxist leader of the Russian Orthodox Church. Included were Italian cardinals and statesmen who had been behind the rise of the Communist Party in Italy. The others were cardinals of impoverished parts of the world. Together they comprised the leadership of the Marxist movement in the western world. They left at 4 o’clock and Aldo Moro reserved the table "...for this time next year." // On March 13, 1979, cardinals Benelli and Felici decided not to travel to northern Italy that day. After all, all the others were dead. They – unaware of their impending doom – were, too, as good as dead........ True Life - True Crime.
