Sounds to me like the typical moonbat stuff trying to connect dots that are linked within perfectly innocent circumstances. For example, did you know that any 2 people in the world can be connected by less than 7 degrees of separation? For example, connect X and Z because X knows W who knows Y who knows Z.
Seven degrees of separation, at most, connect any two people in the world. It’s a sociological fact.
That’s how the whack jobs in the American democrat party convinced themselves that the Bush family is in cahoots with Osama Bin Laden. Michael Moore profited greatly from this old ploy.
Anyway, seeing as how you’re a Brit, did you know erstwhile Beatle George Harrison had a song about this Vatican scandal on his last CD Brainwashed? It’s true. A real toe-tapper. I miss the mop-tops. McCartney might come back to the Church though, which would be cool.
