Members of Anonymous recently took down the official Web site for the Vatican.

"The Vatican Website apparently is the latest victim of the hacker group Anonymous, reportedly taken down March 7 in protest of everything from the Catholic Church's doctrine and tenets to the sexual abuse of children by priests," writes eWeek's Jeffrey Burt.

"In a posting on a blog that reportedly is run by the group in Italy, the hackers railed against the Catholic Church for a host of alleged offenses committed over the centuries, from burning books and executing opponents to aiding the Nazis, opposing abortion and crimes against children," Burt writes.
