Lauryn Hill Tells Catholic Church To Repent

Lauryn Hill accused the Catholic Church of exploitation and moral corruption and urged them to repent from the stage of a Christmas concert she was performing in at the Vatican."I'm not here to celebrate, like you, the birth of Christ, but to ask you why you are not in mourning for his death in this place," Hill said as she read from a prepared statement."Holy god has witnessed the corruption of your leadership of the exploitation and abuses which are the minimum that can be said for the clergy," Hill continued.Cardinal Camillo Ruini, one of the senior most figures in the Church, was at Saturday's concert.His aide labeled Hill's statement as a rash outburst and that she disrespected "the place she was in and for those who invited her."Hill's statement is expected to be edited out of the television broadcast when it airs on Italian television on December 24th.
