It is the only word that seems remotely appropriate to describe the view of human nature implicit in this article, published in the National Post, dealing with the Pope's butler, Paolo Gabriele, the man who leaked embarrassing documents to the media with the intent of exposing Vatican corruption he hopes public scrutiny will ensure an end to.

In other words, the man acted out of conscience; his integrity wouldn't allow him to continue to be a party to concealment of wrongdoing.

If you read through the article, however, towards the end you might be unsettled to learn that the butler's integrity is seen as fit fodder for psychological examination.

I guess because it truly seems to be a rare phenomenon these days, it is considered a potential abnormality.
