This is just perfect

The Catholic Church of England said Saturday it has contacted the Holy See to ask if the papal knighthood awarded to late television star Jimmy Savile could be posthumously removed following sexual abuse allegations.
That was the initial story. The add-on is even better:
LONDON (AP) — The Vatican says it cannot rescind the papal knighthood awarded to television star Jimmy Savile, who emerged as an alleged child sex predator after his death. 
Couldn't happen to a nicer church. Irony lives in the Vatican. It's an essential part of its nature.
