Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

Pope Francis has admitted that a “gay lobby” exists within the Vatican’s administration and is planning to take action about it, according to reports.

The Pontiff supposedly made the claim during an audience last Thursday at the Vatican with a group of Latin American priests and nuns.

“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.”

“Yes, it is difficult,” he reportedly said. “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.”

A Vatican spokesman declined to comment on the statement, which was reported by the Chilean Catholic website, Reflexion y Liberation. “This was a private meeting held by the Pope and I will not comment on private meetings,” said Father Federico Lombardi.

I’ll be the first to admit that there are thousands, millions of decent, loving Catholics out there who live good lives and do good work.

But, frankly, the men you allow to lead your religion are dicks.

    first of all, welcome back!

    i’ll have to cut ‘il papa’ some slack here. he doesn’t equate the ‘current of corruption’ with the gay lobby; he merely notes the existence of both. and he says, ‘we will have to see what we can do’ about the lobby, a statement as ambiguous as can be. i say this as one raised in the catholic church, who regards all organized religion as a plague upon mankind. not disagreeing with any of SPT’s commentary, though.
