Pope admits there is a ‘gay lobby’ at the highest levels of the Vatican

1

Pope Francis has acknowledged the existence of a ‘gay lobby’ inside the Vatican’s secretive administration for the first time.

Speaking during an audience with Latin American Catholics, the Argentine Pontiff said that there was a ‘current of corruption’ in the Roman Curia – the central governing body of the Catholic Church.

He also admitted the existence of a long-rumoured ‘gay lobby’ in the Curia, and hinted that he might take action over the issue.

Speaking in his native Spanish last Thursday, the 76-year-old told the CLAR (the Latin American and Caribbean Confederation of Religious Men and Women): ‘In the Curia, there are truly some saints, but there is also a current of corruption.

‘There is talk of a ‘gay lobby’ and it’s true, it exists,’ he said, in a report on Chilean website Reflexion y Liberacion.  ‘We will have to see what we can do.’

The Argentine pope has made reforming the Roman Curia—the heavily criticised and intrigue-filled administration of the Catholic Church—a keystone of his papacy, but said it would be ‘difficult’.

‘I cannot carry out the reforms myself,’ he said, explaining that he was ‘very disorganised.’

For that reason, the task will be handled by a commission of eight cardinals from around the world whom Pope Francis appointed in April to help him govern the Catholic Church.

They are set to meet for the first time in October.

When the previous Pope, Benedict XVI, announced his decision to retire, many suspected the work of the rumoured gay lobby at the heart of the Curia.

    Wait! Do you mean there are supporters for gays in amongst a bunch of little boy loving priests? Who would have ever considered that? At least the Vatican is not filled with blood ritual Mohles sucking circumcisions on little boys, or are there?

    Mayoral Candidates Take Positions on the ‘Sucking Blood From a Baby’s Circumcised Penis’ Question

    http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2013/05/metzitzah-bpeh-circumcision-mayor-weiner-quinn.html

    The mayoral hopefuls who appeared at a Jewish Press forum in Manhattan Beach last night were asked to take a stand on one of the thorniest, weirdest issues that will ever arise in an election of any kind: metzitzah b’peh. In this beautiful ancient ritual, a mohel sucks the blood from a baby’s penis following a circumcision. Since 2000, thirteen babies in New York City have been infected with herpes during the metzitzah b’peh process. Two of them died, and two suffered brain damage.

    In an effort to stop babies from dying of herpes while still respecting the fundamental right of people to let a guy suck blood off of their newborn’s penis, the Bloomberg administration mandated in 2012 that before a metzitzah b’peh can take place, parents must at least sign a consent form that spells out the health risks of the practice. The question at the forum was whether the candidates supported the consent form, which, for what it’s worth, the relevant people seem to be ignoring anyway.

    Remember Judaism is the root for both the Christian and Muslim religions and all three preach religious genocide.
