the vatican can't be prosecuted by individual states. but they CAN and should be prosecuted in the international court in the hague,netherlands. in addition, the vatican only enjoys a sovereign state status because other countries freely choose to recognize it. if the u.s. were to revoke their recognition, it would allow them to begin proceedings to bring the church into it's jurisdiction here in the u.s. they could then set up a board to review and act on cases of abuse instead of leaving them up to ratzinger and his cronies.

We should push to have the recognition of the Vatican as a Sovereign state removed.
