Two institutions in which millions if not billions have placed their faith have come under siege lately and it seems that Toyota—whose faithful believe in its almost divine and unimpeachable quality, has been doing a better job of handling bad behavior than the Pope.
To date, Toyota has recalled and adjusted millions of cars whereas the Church has been unable to adjust even a portion of Priests who are having trouble with their “Wishboner suspension.”
Social organizations, whether they are corporations or churches or sports teams, almost always get involved in scandals of one sort or another. It's human, and therefore, corporate nature. If scandal is handled humanely and honestly the entity concerned usually emerges stronger and healthier.
My guess is that Toyota will regain any lost marketshare whereas the Pope will continue to lose the faithful.
