The ongoing, unfolding global sex-abuse crisis in the Roman Catholic Church. Coined by Mary Valle, a writer for Killing the Buddha and the Revealer. (Pontiff = Pope. Pontificate, a word derived from pontiff + Watergate.)
"Watergate seemed like so much fun, but Pontifigate is making me feel quite nauseated."
