Some gots it, some don'ts. Religion, or lack thereof, is irrelevant... a lesson you'd think might have sunk in to people's heads by this point. But since the religious are firmly convinced that people can't be moral without whatever brand they recommend, here's another example:
One of Pope Benedict’s ceremonial ushers and a member of an elite choir in St Peter’s Basilica have been implicated in a gay prostitution ring.
Given the context, the following is an... unfortunate... choice of words:
Balducci is also a member of an elite group called "Gentlemen of His Holiness," ushers who are called to serve in the Vatican's Apostolic Palace on major occasions such as when the pope receives heads of state or presides at big events.
