The Vatican a valuable partner in fight against poverty? Pull the other one!

The National Secular Society points out fittingly that the damned Vatican is supposed to be a big partner of the UK in its fight against global poverty and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals, and yet it does everything in its damned power to thwart said goals.

So much for its being a valuable partner. The whole thing stinks to high heaven.

I'd have thought it would be nearer the mark to say the Vatican was a major player in a fight to CREATE more global poverty myself, and shouldn't that be Millenarian Development Goals - as in the type of religious zealots who want to hasten all that Book of Revelations stuff by creating more war, more pestilence, more disease, etc., etc. so that they get to Fairyland faster?

Their idea of aid seems to have more to do with supplying a centre of indoctrination and the staff to run it rather than supplying the things really needed like food and shelter
