Police bust priest’s wild, drug-fueled gay orgy, and now the Pope is pissed

Another day another sex scandal in the Catholic Church.

Vatican police raided a cardinal’s apartment after neighbors reported some seemingly unholy goings on. Upon entering the unit, they found themselves in the middle of a wild drug-fueled gay sex orgy.

The allegations of the sex orgy were first published by the Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano.

According to the paper, the raid happened in June. Police entered an apartment at the former palace of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (or Holy Office) located on the outskirts of Vatican City.

The apartment was occupied by a priest who serves as a secretary to cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, who leads the Pontifical Council for Legislative texts and is a personal adviser to the Pope.

Neighbors became suspicious after they noticed a steady stream of men coming and going from the apartment at all hours and behaving “irregularly.”

Police found illegal drugs and a group of naked men engaged in all sorts of sexual activity. The priest was taken to the Vatican’s Roman Pius XI clinic, to detox from drugs, before being whisked off to an undisclosed convent in Italy.

When the Pope got wind of the situation, he was purportedly “infuriated.” As a result of the scandal, plus a multitude of other scandals, including a monsignor who was arrested for using official Vatican diplomatic license plates to transport the drugs, there is talk that Coccopalmerio may be forced into retirement.

      agreed!

    Bwahahahahahahaha! Another naughty Catholic priest is caught. But wait, this isn’t fake news is it? :>)

    Didn’t his predecessor retire he couldn’t address these behaviors and the issues they raised? I don’t think it’s the fact that there were gay orgies, per se; I think it’s because people who had taken vows of poverty and chastity were holding drug-fueled orgies. This priest is simply a hypocrite; and the people who protected him aren’t that much better.

      Also Pope Benedict was extremely anti-gay, and wrote one of the most harshly anti-gay, homophobic documents ever issued by the Roman Catholic Church, his 1986 “Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on the the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons,” which he was Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger. In it he calls homosexuality “an intrinsic moral evil; and thus the inclination itself must be seen as an objective disorder.” A MORAL EVIL. H*tler was a moral evil; gay people and homosexuality are not.

    Shame on him. Why chose to be a priest when you know that you’re incapable of living up to the self-imposed restrictions and extreme belief systems. Makes no sense to me.

      But that’s the very reason they BECOME priests — because they are devoted Catholics and the church has taught them that they’re doomed to Hell if they act on their homosexual feelings. They think a life of celibacy is the only solution to their “dilemma.” Various priests have said as much, and even former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey, who married twice to try to conceal that he was gay, wrote in his book “The Confession” that he considered the priesthood for that very reason.

      The problem is that any healthy man cannot live up to that chastity requirement for very long. It’s not natural for a man to be chaste for a lifetime. So the best outcome is that they have sex with each other, and the worst is that they molest boys.

      gaym50ish – uhhh thats a really bad excuse. Gay men who join the clergy make the same sacrifice that straight men do. They take an oath to their faith and god to follow its rules. Theres plenty of history of straight clergy men braking their vows and abusing their positions with women and girls throughout history. It still stands that if you cannot hold an oath of celibacy to your god, you have failed to fulfill your duty- gay or straight. The fact that it ISNT “natural” to be chaste is the whole point. Its a sacrifice that clergymen have made for centuries.

      Not a god damn bit of it makes any sense.That is my assessment after 12 years of parochial school
      back in the 50’s and 60’s corporal punishment was given free reign.
      When sister ‘sarge’ would wack a boy on any part of his body,today I fantasize he taking the ruler breaking it over his knee and throwing the damn thin right at her.Of course it never happened back then were scared shit less.

    what’s with the plastic bag spilling crystals?

    • o.codone

      Grow up Rex. Crystals in a plastic bag. It’s magic rocks man. You use your glue gun to put them on your Christmas ornaments. Seriously.

      But wait !, This sounds like a fabulous party. Have you seen how hot some of those young priests are? Mama Mia. I’m praying to get invited to one of these parties. Bless me Father, let’s commit some dirty azz licking sin. Right now.

    A few years ago there was a great ad for a bathhouse featuring a hot Italian bear who strips out of his clerical garb to get ready for sex. Look, the frigging Vatican bought apartments right abovea bathhouse! They aren’t fooling anybody, which is why they should stop trashing gay, bi, and trans people. (And Cardinal Burke girl, that includes you!)

  • loulou2lou

    The pope was probably pissed because the priest was having one hell of a good time for himself.
    He should have asked the cops to join in.

    Religion is poison. They don’t even pretend to follow the precepts of their outdated, cruel, misogynistic, bigoted, pro-slavery, unnatural book that was written by primitive tribes millennia ago.
