The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests said the vast majority of cardinals are tainted by having ignored cases of predatory priests or by having actively covered them up and impeded efforts by police and prosecutors to bring the offenders to justice.The damning indictment came as it was claimed that there were up to 20 moles inside the Vatican prepared to leak more confidential documents in order to expose corruption, following the example of Pope Benedict XVI’s butler, who was jailed for theft after handing a stash of stolen papers to an Italian journalist.

The anonymous mole said he hoped the resignation of Benedict would “reverse the decline and offer the opportunity to his successor to start again from scratch. I hope that there will no longer be a need for moles to speak out.”

He also said that reports of a powerful gay lobby within the Vatican were true. “I could give the names of cardinals and monsignors, bishops and functionaries,” he said.
