Great news for the sexually deviant seeking romantic encounters with God’s army in the Vatican. According to reports, the world’s most unlikely place to find NSA hookups has become a den of iniquity with the uncovering of “Venerabilis,” a gay hookup site targeted for gay priests looking to get busy in the holiest place on Earth.
Though not explicitly pornographic, the site is said to be run “by a fraternity of Homo-Sensitive Roman Catholic Priests” looking to find “like-minded priests” via chatrooms and “missed connections” posts.
Venerabilis offers chatrooms in five different languages where sleuths have already discovered a number of sexual encounters in progress. From “the cafeteria” to a university bookshop, virtually no meeting place is off limits for members looking to meet face-to-face (or face-to-well…you get it).
Members new to the site exchange their emails for an automatically-generated user ID, but one Catholic writer from the Dallas Area Catholics says it’s not as private as one might assume:
This site is smart in that everyone operates under automatically generated IDs, but people are dumb and have left their personal e-mails all over the place. I bet a decent multi-lingual private investigator could identify dozens of people from the site in an afternoon’s work.
And though the Dallas Area Catholics are opposed to a gay dating website for priests, they’re not above stating the obvious:
And, if the sodomite mafia is as well established and widespread as we think it is, then it would make sense that there would be a great concentration in Rome, for that is where the levers of power are located. So no wonder there may be an excess, so to speak, there. Folks, don’t fool yourselves into believing this mafia is made up only of a few scattered bishops and maybe a cardinal or too. It is at least as widespead in the episcopate as it is in the regular clergy, and possibly even more so. Think about for a while.
