It's the Vatican and Benedict has inadvertently exposed the mess. The Gay Cabal has been operating for centuries and the priests' abuse of children is nothing new either. omerta has been traditiom in Italy for centuries and has helped the Vatican Cardinals conceal the homosexual cabal for centuries. According to tradition, Omertà is a code of silence, according to one of the first Mafia researchers Antonio Cutrera, a former officer of public security, that seals lips of men even in their own defense and even when the accused is innocent of charged crimes. Cutrera quoted a native saying first uttered (so goes the legend) by a wounded man to his assailant: "If I live, I'll kill you. If I die, I forgive you." If you create an institution where men are the sole occupants of the executive positions and women are seen as only fit for menial tasks in the organization, where only the men are permitted to wear the silk and satin, is it surprising that many of the Princes of the Church are homosexual and that they band together in order to achieve power and protection? That some celibate priests would find sexual stimulation and satisfaction with their juvenile parishioners shouldn't surprise us as much as the deliberate shielding of the predators by their superiors does. Benedict was discovered to have been "negligent" with some priestly predators in Germany and his was obviously not the first or last cover-up in Church history. Rumors of priests and Bishops fathering children with female parishioners and nuns have been circulating for centuries. Even Popes have sired a few bastards- at least one with his own daughter.
Now the hypocrisy has been exposed. What will follow? A renewed, chaste and pure institution? And flying pigs as well?
