Vatican City

Conspiracy theorists claim that the centre of the Catholics has been infiltrated by Satanists. David Icke, the notorious proponent of the Reptilian conspiracy theory, sees the Catholic Church as a front organization for a millennia-old Babylonian cult involving human sacrifice and incest. Others point out that child abuse has been systematic in the Catholic Church for decades. By covering up cases of abuse, the church not only tolerates paedophilia, but also encourages it by simply transferring priests if they are suspected and allowing them to continue their mischief. This shows that evil reigns in the Vatican: The fish stinks from the head! However, experts agree that the epidemic of child abuse is rooted in structural issues rather than Satanism.
