Homosexual cabal in Vatican the “real reason” for the Pope’s resigcation? February 22, 2013Posted by tantamergo in abdication of duty, Basics, disaster, episcopate, error, General Catholic, horror, priests, sadness, scandals, sexual depravity, unadulterated evil.
This sounds a bit to pat and convenient for me, although the revelation of the depths of disorder in the Curia – of which I have no doubt whatsoever – may have played a role. It is being reported that the investigation into the Vatileaks scandal concluded last December and presented to Pope Benedict found very disturbing evidence of corrupt curial officials who were engaged in both theft and homosexual depravity. The last bit has been known for some time, in 2010 an Italian paper followed priests from the Diocese of Rome and the Curia around with a hidden camera to Roman gay baths and got video of them breaking their priestly vows of celibacy in the worst ways. For all the good he did, it does not appear Pope Benedict was able to rein in the runaway Curia that developed under Blessed Pope John Paul II:
The Vatican has refused to comment on Italian press reports that an internal report on the “Vatileaks” scandal might have influenced the decision by Pope Benedict XVI to resign.
The daily La Repubblica reported that in their report to the Pope, a commission of 3 cardinals investigating the leaked papal documents had found evidence of a homosexual network within the Vatican, and hinted at the possibility that some Vatican officials were subject to blackmail…..
….Father Lombardi said that the three cardinals had submitted their report privately to Pope Benedict, and it would be passed on to his successor. The three prelates who investigated the “Vatileaks” scandal and prepared a thorough report—Cardinals Julian Herranz, Jozef Tomko, and Salvatore De Giorgi—will not be giving interviews or divulging details regarding the contents of the report, he said. Cardinal Herranz, who chaired the commission, confirmed: “The Pope is the only person we have reported to on this question.”
La Repubblica claimed that in a lengthy report on the leaks, the cardinals had alerted the Pontiff to the existence of factions within the Roman Curia, including a powerful faction “united by sexual orientation.” Some members of that bloc, the cardinals reportedly said, may be vulnerable to “external influence” because of their activities. The Italian newspaper said that the report shocked Pope Benedict and contributed to his decision to resign. [details released elsewhere made clear that these officials HAD been blackmailed, not merely that they were vulnerable to it]
Ignazio Ingrao, who covers the Vatican for Panorama magazine, backed the report by La Repubblica. He said that the cardinals’ commission disclosed “a network of alliances and acts of blackmail of homosexual nature in several areas of the Curia.”
And it is also reported elsewhere that while there were separate networks tied to mob activites that used the Vatican bank to launder money, these homosexual cabals were deeply involved in the sins against the 7th Commandment, as well. Which only figures, if you’re going to enter the priesthood under false pretences, never having a true vocation, and use that convenient identity to commit all manner of sins in direct rejection of the Grace that should flow through a priest through Holy Orders and daily offering of the Mass, pretty much any sin is possible. As Fr. Oko described in his lengthy analysis of the crisis of homosexuals in the priesthood, men that have for so long rejected Grace and committed such horrific sins are almost impossible to convert back to a life of piety. This nest of vipers is deeply imbeded in the Church and it is going to take great fortitude and zeal to dig them out.
As to whether this revelation had an impact on the Holy Father’s decision to resigcate………I really don’t know. It was probably all of a piece. I still think the Muller imbroglio over the former Pontifical University of Peru had an impact, as well. I think he just looked at the chaos ongoing around him and said “enough!”
