Is Vatican really Holy?

I always wonder when Vatican people especially the Pontiff speaks about PEACE and sin. The history is open in front of us. The most manipulated history, The Christianity. From the very beginning, they played a game of power and money. The suppression of many religions, killing, history of the so called 'Holy Wars'. The tools they used to perform cruelties are still in many museums. The worst time for science and technology. The examples are a lot, Galileo is only one among a thousand. He was put in prison even at severe illness. He was forced to alter his statements. Still he is a criminal for the Vatican. And Pope John Paul II made a historic comment.. " Galileo's case is over now ". But don't the church use science and technology after all these? Don't they spend hundreds of thousands still to make an existence? And after the most blood shed and manipulated stories still they brainwash millions and enjoy power. Isn't this something so..Brutal..?
Here is what WikiPedia Says about him
Galileo's championing of Copernicanism was controversial within his lifetime. The geocentric view had been dominant since the time of Aristotle, and the controversy engendered by Galileo's opposition to this view resulted in the Catholic Church's prohibiting the advocacy of heliocentrism as potentially factual, because that theory had no decisive proof and was contrary to the literal meaning of Scripture.[7] Galileo was eventually forced to recant his heliocentrism and spent the last years of his life under house arrest on orders of the Inquisition.
