The Authority! is Offended

VATICAN CITY (AP) – Newly released U.S. diplomatic cables indicate that the Vatican felt "offended" that Ireland failed to respect Holy See "sovereignty" by asking high-ranking churchmen to answer questions from an Irish government commission probing decades of sex abuse of minors by clergy… The Vatican press office declined to comment on the content of the cables Saturday, but decried the leaks as a matter of "extreme gravity." The U.S. ambassador to the Holy See also condemned the leaks and said in a statement that the Vatican and America cooperate in promoting universal values. (12/11/10)

The Catholic Church is “offended” because the Irish government wanted to ask church officials a few questions about decades of child sexual abuse by Catholic priests. The church regards the leaking of this fact to the public as a matter of “extreme gravity.” The Vatican wants to cooperate by promoting “universal values” with America.

I wonder – does that mean universal values like honesty, integrity and accountability? Or does it just mean more of the hypocrisy as usual of Authority!?
