Pope Francis Admits There Actually Is A Gay Lobby In The Vatican

Pope_Francis_in_March_2013Pope Francis acknowledged the existence of a long-rumored “gay lobby” in the Roman Curia — the administrative wing of the Holy See that assists Francis with his papal duties — but don’t worry, he’s trying to reform it.

The Pope made the remarks during an audience with the Latin American and Caribbean Confederation of Religious Men and Women, as reported by Chilean Catholic website, Reflexion y Liberación and translated by the Catholic blog Rorate Caeli:

Yes, it is difficult. In the curia there are holy people, truly holy people. But there is also a current of corruption, also there is, it is true… they speak of a ‘Gay Lobby’ and that is true, it is there.. we will have to see what we can do…
The reform of the Roman Curia is something that almost all Cardinals asked for in the Congregations preceding the Conclave. I also asked for it. I cannot promote the reform myself, these matters of administration… I am very disorganized, I have never been good at this. But the cardinals of the Commission will move it forward.

Pope Benedict was rumored to resign earlier this year after a report uncovered several lobbies in the Holy See, including one “united by sexual orientation.” Some of the members of this gay lobby were being blackmailed and Benedict’s decision to retire was — allegedly — influenced by the unfolding scandal. The Vatican, of course, denied the existence of such a faction, but queer we are less than four months later.

The scandal-plagued Vatican has had its fairy share of gay drama, more recently than usual; from the Pope’s Clooney-esque sexetary he’s purportedly living with to Cardinal O’Brien’s secret boyfriend and unwanted overtures to four male priests. Then of course there was the whole gay prostitute ring in 2010 and hidden camera video of priests having sex in bathhouses.

We’ll be damned (more than usual) if this gay lobby doesn’t sound like the only fun part of the Vatican. It’s no wonder everyone’s dragging their robes on this “reformation.”

    The Bible & Torah should be banned!

    Here are several really loving excerpts from the Torah; the first five books of the Old Testament in the bible — perhaps read to the congregation on Friday night at a synagogue or a Sunday morning church in the meadow.

    1. Kill any friends or family that worship a god that is different than your own. Deuteronomy 13:6-10
    2. Kill all the inhabitants of any city where you find people that worship differently than you. Deuteronomy 13:12-16
    3. Kill everyone who has religious views that are different than your own. Deuteronomy 17:2-7.

    Rabbinical / Priestly rules:
    Leviticus 21:17-18 … “No one who is blind or lame or has a defect or any blemish may approach to offer the bread of his God.”
    Leviticus 18:22 … “You are not to go to bed with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination ….”

    Rabbis; the pope and churches fully aware that Leviticus 18:22 applies to rabbis and priests … refuse to remove this stigma maliciously persecuting gays. Kids are being bullied into suicide …!

    Being left-handed – being black or being gay is just as natural. It is a sometimes rare occurrence to fall in Love and to hold that person in your heart and be loved in return … it is something that should be celebrated! If it is love between two guys or two girls … all the better … it takes even more courage to defend that LOVE!

    It is written; so therefore it shall be? We are the chosen people; such a wicked fantasy.

    Your article didn’t make it clear, the pope with the Clooneyesque secretary was the BORE, Bishop of Rome Emeritus Benedict 16, Not Francis.
