Vatican Gay Sex Ring? Why Am I Not Surprised




It seems by what I read online, that in addition to all the priest pedophile revelations, the ongoing scandal of theVatican Bank , the crimes of the pope's butler, and this pope's seemingly unending series of ineptitudes and out of touch gaffesl, there's yet another issue surfacing in the Vatican today.  

According to a number of sources this morning, including an article that caught my eye in The Guardian, the pope's retirement is not just about failing health ( I never believed that anyway), it is also linked to a network of gay prelates in the Vatican, some of whom are being blackmailed by outsiders. I guess that was the straw that broke the camel's back and left God's Rotweiler shaking in his little red Prada shoes.

  The allegation originally surfaced in a major Italian daily newspaper La Repubblica yesterday, and today, it is all over the internet.

According to the article, after the butler was arrested, the pope designated three Cardinals to look into the whole " Vatileaks" thing and report back.  Here's a quote from The Guardian :
"The paper( i.e.La Repubblica ) said the pope had taken the decision on 17 December that he was going to resign – the day he received a dossier compiled by three cardinals delegated to look into the so-called "Vatileaks" affair.....According to La Repubblica, the dossier comprising "two volumes of almost 300 pages – bound in red" had been consigned to a safe in the papal apartments and would be delivered to the pope's successor upon his election.
The newspaper said the cardinals described a number of factions, including one whose members were "united by sexual orientation". In an apparent quotation from the report, La Repubblica said some Vatican officials had been subject to "external influence" from laymen with whom they had links of a "worldly nature". The paper said this was a clear reference to blackmail."Personally, I don't know or care what the Pope's personal sexual orientation is.  It really doesn't matter.  What does matter is the obvious dysfunction, corruption, and organizational hubris that is now being spotlighted.  It is becoming more and more obvious to all with eyes to see, that the government of the Church is an edifice built on centuries of lies. Constantine told that whopper about seeing a cross in the sky, legitimized Christianity and an unholy bargain between church and state began.

 The Medievil Church is the one organization that contributed to keeping the Dark Ages dark as long as possible. More people were burned at the stake by the Inquisition than were martyred by Roman Emperors.  I'm not even going to mention the Renaissance with its parade of perverted popes.  It is no accident that the pope carries the ancient Roman title of  Pontifex Maximus. Is it any wonder that such an ancient and secretive organization would host a gay sex ring?  I find it sad, but not at all surprising.

Evangelical Protestants who have always considered the Roman Catholic church the great whore of Babylon referred to in the book of Revelations must be crowing as they get ready for the Rapture-- although they have nothing to brag about when it comes to sex, secrets and sin.

But back to the main event.  I'm not surprised at today's revelations( to coin a phrase) and as the days go on I'll be looking for more.  Looks to this sinner like Vatican Inc is in crisis and is going to do what it can to save itself.  I only hope it does not destroy the rest of us in the process.  Whoever the new pope is, I will be interested to see what he does with the information contained in that hot 300 page dossier of  Vatican sex and blackmail left for him by Benedict XVI.

 Pass the popcorn and let's get on with the show.

I also suspected this news was about to break. The only thing left for the Church to do is to sanctify gay relationships (yeah right!) and to allow those poor hard up priests to marry. In effect, the scandal forced the pope out of office and that's something unheard of.. ever. Once those kids get their thrones they will never leave it. No for nobody, not no how!
