Hip-hop singer shocks Vatican

"US hip-hop singer Lauryn Hill stunned leading members of the Roman Catholic Church when she accused them of moral corruption, exploitation and abuse from the stage during a Christmas concert at the Vatican... An aide to Ruini, Bishop Rino Fisichella, described the singer's speech as "a rash outburst. An uneducated act showing a lack of respect for the place she was a guest and for those who invited her.""

It's funny that there was no report whether the Church would investigate or act on any of Ms. Hill's accusation. They all expect us to turn the other cheek, I guess.
