In an increasingly secular society Pope Francis is charged with ensuring the survival of the Roman Catholic Church. For centuries, Pope’s have overseen the world’s most dominant religion. The Catholic Church has survived scandal after scandal. Pedophile priests, the forced immigration of children, and corrupt banking practices are just a few of the matters that Pope Francis and his predecessor have had to deal with in recent years. As List Verse points out, there have also been scandals around the Catholic Church’s collaboration with Nazi’s, and its alleged mafia links, as well as numerous sexual abuse scandals.
