Pope Resignation Linked To Gay Blackmail Scandal

Via Gawker reports:

A new report outlining a network of gay Vatican officials might have been behind the Pope’s resignation earlier this month, a claim the Vatican neither confirms or denies.

Italian newspaper La Repubblica reports that gay Vatican prelates were being blackmailed by people with knowledge of their network, which met and had sexual encounters in “a villa outside the Italian capital, a sauna in a Rome suburb, a beauty parlour in the centre, and a former university residence that was in use by a provincial Italian archbishop.”

The network was supposedly detailed in a 300-page report to the Pope put together by three cardinals who were looking into the “Vatileaks” affair, a series of Papal dispatches which were stolen and leaked by Pope Benedict’s butler last May. The report was given to the Pope on the same day he reportedly decided to resign.

The cardinals found that “various lobbies within the Holy See were consistently breaking” the sixth and seventh commandments (no adultery, no stealing), and were influencing the Vatican. Pope Benedict alluded to the affair in his Ash Wednesday homily, when he railed against vague internal “divisions.”

Let’s pray the successor has not only more intellectual competence but will also have greater moral fiber. The scandal of avoiding defrocking pedos and their enablers undermined the ethical character of the Roman Catholic denomination.
