Overview

One only needs to take a glance at the international press to admit that there has been an ongoing attack against the church, and in particular, the personage of Pope Benedict XVI—an attack based on hatred of whatever he says or does. For example, the absurd controversy surrounding the references to Mohammed in the Regensburg speech, which upset the Islamists, or the diplomatic crisis regarding the statements about condoms on his first trip to Africa. Two Vatican authorities have documented everything that has occurred, making some of the qualified protagonists speak out, and gathering unedited testimonies that demonstrate the existence of three types of attacks against Pope Benedict XVI: the first comes from powers outside of the church, the second has to do with the internal design of the church, and the third originates from his more immediate surroundings.
