America’s Top Catholic Blogger Says Pope Benedict Is GAY

Pope Benedict XVI will officially retire at 8 p.m. tomorrow, but his retirement package is raising a few eyebrows — and resurrecting rumors about his sexuality. Rather than decamp to some monastery in Germany as many expected, Benedict will instead stay living in the Vatican.

Are they partners for life…or Life Partners?

CNN reports he will be living in the Mater Ecclesiae (Mother of the Church) building, which formerly housed a cloistered convent in the Vatican gardens. He will be referred to as the “emeritus pope” and keep wearing the white — though he will lose his trademark red shoes, perhaps wearing a pair of “handcrafted brown loafers” instead, the WSJ reports.

One detail that has caused particular scrutiny is that the Pope will continue to live with his trusted secretary Archbishop Georg Ganswein, who will also be head of the new Pope’s household — from the sounds of it, working two jobs.

The Vatican denies that Ganswein working for both the old Pope and the new Pope will cause any conflict of interest. But there’s a more scandalous question as well, as put forward by Andrew Sullivan, perhaps the best-known Catholic blogger in America, today:

So Benedict’s handsome male companion will continue to live with him, while working for the other Pope during the day. Are we supposed to think that’s, well, a normal arrangement?

Sulivan, a gay man himself, has raised the question of the Pope’s sexuality before (he doesn’t suggest that the Pope has acted upon his sexual urges, we should note).

In 2010 he wrote that “it seems pretty obvious to me … that the current Pope is a gay man,” and went on to describe his reasoning:

When you look at the Pope’s mental architecture (I’ve read a great deal of his writing over the last two decades) you do see that strong internal repression does make sense of his life and beliefs. At times, it seems to me, his gayness is almost wince-inducing. The prissy fastidiousness, the effeminate voice, the fixation on liturgy and ritual, and the over-the-top clothing accessories are one thing. But what resonates with me the most is a theology that seems crafted from solitary introspection into a perfect, abstract unity of belief. It is so perfect it reflects a life of withdrawal from the world of human relationship, rather than an interaction with it. Of course, this kind of work is not inherently homosexual; but I have known so many repressed gay men who can only live without severe pain in the world if they create a perfect abstraction of what it is, and what their role is in it.

Sullivan isn’t exactly alone in his suspicions. He points towards a book by Angelo Quattrocchi (playfully titled “The Pope is Not Gay”) that he felt reached similar conclusions. In addition,former Benedictine monk-priest and author Richard Sipe claims to have spoken to a number of Roman clerics and members of the Roman press corps who were “convinced” that Benedict XVI was gay.

Of course, it doesn’t help the rumors that Ganswein has become something of a star in his own right. He’s been dubbed the “The George Clooney of the Vatican,” and appeared on the cover of the Italian Vanity Fair under the headline “It’s no sin to be good looking.” Donatella Versace has even dedicated a menswear collection to him. source – Yahoo

    And he is referred to as “His Holiness”…….how utterly disgusting. I would hate to be him in the Day of Judgement.

  2. Steve C says:

    Hi holiness is his rectum!!

  3. suez says:

    I still think the pope played the part of that creepy guy in the Star Wars movie!!! He looks just like him. Just needs the black cape!!!! Gay??? Wouldn’t surprise me in the least. He is just creepy!!!!

  4. The crude comments are uncalled for. People’s suspicions regarding his sexual preference are far from proof. In any case, the article seems to lean toward sexual repression…not acting out homosexual behavior. I would posit that any priest in sexually repressed by choice. It is likely, though, that rumors that he resigned under pressure have some basis in fact. What they used to pressure him may also explain why he is staying under wraps in the Vatican. Our bigger concern is who will replace him. Expect it to be someone with a social agenda and weak doctrine.

    • suez says:

      It will certainly be interesting to see if he is replaced by Peter!! Since that is what the St. Malachy Prophecies say it will be. Who knows if those Prophecies of St. Malachy are true or not? So far they, have been as they were written, but was it by divine intervention of God Almighty at work, or by the Catholic high ups down through the ages, making sure that it did happen the way it was written??? Guess we will never know for sure!!! But it will be interesting anyway!!!

  5. This is the new world orders way of promoting gays through a man who is on his way out and probably has never had anything to do with gays. They are foreshadowing what is coming though.

  6. Mary says:

    Something bad is going on. May God forgive them all.

    • suez says:

      God will only forgive them if they humble themselves and pray and seek his face, and ask forgiveness!! Of coarse they would have to be Born Again as Jesus said in: Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
      Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
      Joh 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
      Truly the Pope’s have not been Born Again by the Spirit of God, as they are in so much false doctrine and being controlled by the anti-Christ spirit.

  7. actually, one vatican worker testimonied that beneDICK was doing the HARLEM SHAKE one morning, with only his underwear… just because he is bored and want to have some fun.

  8. les hulse says:

    does not mean he,s taking it in bum, he,s cellibit

  9. suez says:

    Why do some people post such disgusting things. Just shows you where there sick mind is…I am not a fan of the pope, but these nasty comments are uncalled for. If he is gay, God will judge him, end of story!!!

  10. Sparrow says:

    I assumed they were all gay! There is suppossed to be a vast underground gay community in the Vatican. Rotten to the core!

    • suez says:

      Does it really matter if he is gay??? With all the other sin’s the Popes have, false doctrine, leading people astray, worshiping Mary, worshiping idols, and being controlled by the devil, just to name a very few, what is one more sin, on already a very long list!!! They will be cast into the lake of fire with all the idols, and the devil in the end anyway!! Very sad indeed!!!

  11. alex says:

    If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.

    James 1:26 ESV

  12. Brandon says:

    Where do we feel we have the right to judge this man by some rumor? God is the Judge. Asside from that the person making the claims says he is Catholic yet is gay himself. Shouldn’t that raise a red flag? It does for me and I’m not Catholic.

  13. Kimbo says:

    okay, God will judge him, just the same as God will judge all of us for all our sins. Sin is sin people don’t forget we all sin and come short of the glory of God. I would rather admit my sin and be forgiven, then to hide it under a bush. Thank you God for forgiving me for all my sins that I have committed, and thank you Jesus for paying that priceless price.

  14. Aunthill says:

    If he is gay and did not act on it, he is the same as a straight person who never had consensual relations. The man is getting ready to die. Leave him alone.

  15. Leo says:

    IF TRUE ? it would not surprise me .

  16. lola says:

    Of course people will believe what they want to believe. The Pope may be gay and maybe not but I’m not going to believe that he is merely because a gay blogger, who doesn’t even know the Pope, says so. The Catholic Church has certainly been responsible for covering up thousands of perversions and crimes against innocent children but that still does not mean I should automatically believe a gay blogger who likely has more of an axe to grind with the church. The fact is, the church speaks out against homosexuality and it is a gay blogger making the accusation. It also wouldn’t surprise me if the accusation were true either because the entire planet is run amok with all manner of sin and no church anywhere is immune from scandal. I do feel it is a sin to jump up and down and point an accusing finger whether at the Pope or anyone else just because that’s the popular thing to do at the time. If you spread rumors without knowing the facts and you do so just to make someone look bad that is actually gossip. My Bible says that gossip is a sin. …just sayin’…

  17. helen says:

    i have no respect for the catholic church. It is alot of pompous men with glamourous garments and empty hearts parading as men. The hearts being blinded by false doctrine and brainwashing they are play acting it seems. Denying the truth and believing a lie. Why they are a World power is hidden from the common man and mystifies the world. has salvation come to their house? nay i say but can a leopard change his spots?

  18. Judy says:

    He’s older than dirt. He’s not gay, he’s too old to be anything other than breathing.

  19. les hulse says:

    sins cannot be forgiven, by some pedo, roman catolic church has had more people killed than are alive

  20. les hulse says:

    its been revealed that, the messiah on return[jesus] he will bring an army to fight false gods, this has been translated from,nostrodamus, he will fight 2 false gods, the pope and the queen of england, i can,t wait

    • suez says:

      Les, I just have to let you know, Nostrodamus was a mystic, and was NOT of God. The god of the underworld maybe!!!! Try applying yourself to reading the King James Bible, and you will find true facts, and not false predictions made by a man, that seen things in a water bowl!!!! The Queen of England??? LOL, well I don’t think that would be much of a battle??? LOL Jesus Christ will come back at the end of this age. He will destroy the armies of the anti-Christ, whom-ever that will include!!! The false prophet (most likely the Pope at that time), and the beast will be cast into hell!!! The Devil will be bound for 1,000 years, then released again, to make one final bid at a war against Christ. But slam, Jesus will destroy him and all his armies that follow him!!!! And they shall all be cast into the lake of fire, forever. You can read all about it in the Book of Revelation!! It will be much clearer and it is truth!!! Stay away from the Mystics, and turn to the God of the Bible, and he will show you the real truth about what is going to happen in the end of days, in which we are already into!!! Like birth-pangs in a woman in labor, so we are in the birth-pangs of the end of this earth age!!!! Be ready, for in a hour that you think not, the Son of God Cometh!!!! :)

      • I agree Suez and Sebra. I believe the devil will have a thousand years with the mystics to tell him that at the end of the thousand years he will be released. The horoscopes will be a very hot topic for a thousand years. No pun intended.

        • My bad thats Duez and Sebra I mean Suez and Debra. There thats better. :)

        • suez says:

          What???????????????????????? A 1,000 years with the mystics to tell him? Oh, LOL. I do believe no one will be in the pit with satan but his evil principalities and powers…the evil angels. The others are in the lake of fire and brimstone!! Separate places!! Read that scripture. I just happened upon it the other day. Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshiped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
          Then chapter 20: Rev 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
          Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
          Rev 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
          Separate places, I think anyway!!!! For that time. then: 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
          Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever. Devil doesn’t go with the others till after the 1,000 years!! I just seen that the other day!! God is so wonderful!!!! I think there won’t be anyone in the pit with satan, except maybe some of his demonic generals!!!! Just my humble opinion anyway. Do with it what you want!! :)

  21. Debra says:

    People like to stir up things to get a reaction like we’re seeing on this post. It’s best to keep your eyes on the Lord and what’s happening around you right now, than worry about a pope or anyone else being gay, nay, or may! Who really cares! Each man and woman will stand before God and give an account for his or her life in the end. We should be like Christ and wish no man to parish in hell. The bible is against rejoicing at evil! Be careful brothers and sisters that you don’t fall under the judgment of God for rejoicing at this pope’s possible sin destruction. Shalom!

  22. les hulse says:

    i,m not very educated in religious and shi ite law, is it or is it not a sin to be gay, it don,t matter if they are shagging/boys/dogs/bitches/ is it against bible laws, if so, they all want locking up, sez lezlow

  23. Joan says:

    This is hilarious and absurd. How can Benedict be gay when he has been in love with one woman for many, many years now from before he was Pope? They are deeply devoted to each other and also are both sincere Catholics. Therefore Benedict and this special lady have a chaste relationship, a pure but loving relationship. Behind every great man is a woman, and that is true also of popes, and only you with sick minds who cannot control your own sexual feelings have to malign noble people down to your level.
