'They look like they're having a good time talking about rape': Vatican is mocked for releasing 'shockingly inappropriate photo' of giggling Pope and his cardinals meeting to discuss church sex abuse next to a suggestive statuette

The Vatican press office was skewered by Twitter users on Thursday for releasing a photo showing Pope Francis grinning along with US cardinals and bishops during an emergency meeting to address a church sex scandal.

In the handout image from the Vatican Media, the Holy Father looks to be in a jovial mood while talking to Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, of Galveston-Houston, who leads the US Conference of Bishops, Cardinal Sean O'Malley, Archbishop of Los Angeles Jose Horacio Gomez and Monsignor Brian Bransfield, of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

All six clergyman in the photo taken before a private audience to address the groping allegations against former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick appear to be smiling or laughing.
