    hmmmm, Blackmail, ya don't say, and I always thought this kinda action along with coercion, extortion was used by Italian mob, mafia, gangs or white collar criminals, not by upstanding corporations and their management(s), unless these corporate managers are influenced by the Jesuit Order and have been blackmailing and defaming as a way of life and control.

    another truther veil has been lifted..........icon_smile.gif

    now.. if they only get caught sending black magic spells and curses upon people whom they don't like..soo busted..icon_smile.gif

    He is not just admitting to the existence of a 'gay lobby' within the Vatican, he is condemning it. As far as he's concerned, it is a cancer that must be cut out, along with all the other 'corruption'.

    People please! The Catholic Church has contributed more to art, architecture, literature, music, philosophy, etc. than any other institution since the dawn of time. Do you think it could have been accomplished by an institution run by straight men? Please, if that were the case the Vatican would be a hodge-podge of utilitatian, metal sheds without any art at all and the mass would be a 15 minute meeting at a local convenience store to stock up on beer and chips before the televised football game. Pews would be easy chairs.

    The Catholic Church is the greatest gay run organization in the world! Hell, the Vatican looks like it was decorated by Liberace.

    If I had my life to live over again I would have become a Catholic priest. You just work on Sunday mornings, maybe a funeral here and there, weddings and baptisms, but most of your free time is just when things start happening at the local gay bars!

    Damn! I fucked up supremely! Should have been a priest like I wanted to when I was a kid.

    Seriously, be glad for the gay lobby in the Vatican. Remember change occurs from within.

    Instead, they created the biggest and most elaborate closet in the world. It is certainly nothing for gay people to be proud of.

    You have to admit it's a FABULOUSLY decorated closet, and they get straights to pay for it all! I think that's pretty ingenious.

    Please, the pope has to say those things every now and then to keep the straights in the pews giving to the coffers. I'm telling you it's the greatest scheme ever devised by a cadre of homos ever! They're over in the Vatican laughing their asses off at the dupes in the pews.

    Considering that the Catholic Church is the 2nd most homophobic group in the world (right after those lovable islamic religions) the "gay lobby" in the vatican which the pope wants to eradicate must be the most ineffective lobby group in history.

    Not so. In the r.c. church, it comes from the top (hierarchy).

    Go ahead; become a priest. It's never too late. But don't be surprised if they make you denounce your past and make you vow you'll repress any sexual and/or homosexual feelings. The church is full of gay priests, but they try to drum into their minds that sex is a "dirty, immoral, wicked" practice that single people shouldn't engage in.
    Your statement that "change occurs from within" is false when it refers to the r.c. church. Sorry, but in that church, change comes from the top. The laity is irrelevant.

    He may bring me back to The Church!

    This Pope has been a breath of fresh air. The Church has historically been 50-100 years behind the most liberal Republicans. To see it become suddenly instep, or nearly, with modern views is extraordinary.

    Former Vatican guard: I was regularly asked for gay sex by priests

    A former Swiss guard claims cardinals, priests and bishops asked him for sex at least 20 times during his time serving the Vatican

    Overall, he's still less loathsome than the previous pope "Been-A-Dick." I swear, that fucker looked exactly like Star Wars' galactic emperor. But more loathsome and detestable.

    There is no Third Vatican Council...unfortunately. In case anyone doesn't realize this is satire.
