    Let’s just build a high wall around the Vatican, wait until the inhabitants are all dead and turn the whole place in a museum annex library. Taking these people seriously is a waste of time, as shown this week do about the US ambassador, who must be a religious bigot.

    Q: What’s the difference between a nun and a lesbian?

    A: About six week in in the convent!

  3. My cousin is a nun in the USA. She visited the UK recently with “her companion”, another nun from the same convent. They both wore ordinary women’s clothes. They didn’t grope each other or anything when we met for a meal at a restaurant but it was obvious they were “an item”.

  4. It’s as simple as this:

    “The Pope said behaviour beyond traditional heterosexual relations is “a destruction of God’s work”

    So… why doesn’t he…

    1. Get married?
    2. Have children?
    3. Form a “normal” family”
    4. Have a wife?
    5. Do “man things” like play football or watch boxing or cheat on his woman with his secretary (or the plumber)?

    Becose THE POPE IS A REPRESSED GAY OLD MAN IN THE VATICAN CLOSET

  5. There is also a bit of the tranny in there too. Close Vatican watchers are said to be dismayed at his/her fondness for fur trimmed garments long since discarded by previous popes. It is also said he/she is demanding a new triple tiara be made for him/her.

    All the best.

  6. I envy Michaelangelo you know. A blatantly gay artist who somehow convinced the then pope to give him a stack of cash to daub a patently homoerotic fresco all over his ceiling!
    Even the women in that painting are blatantly modeled on Michaelangelo’s personal stable of young male studs, all carrying a couple of grapefruit down their blouses. If you don’t believe me, check the width of the shoulders compared to the width of the hips on those women.
    So in summary, we have gay models and transvestites adorning the ceiling of the most homophobic institution in the world! Kudos to Michaelangelo… the only thing which could’ve made that painting more subversive is if he’d painted condoms on the men!

  7. “In December Pope Benedict XVI claimed that the existence of gay people is as great a threat to humanity as the destruction of the rainforest.”

    No matter how many times you and other outlets repeat this lie, it remains just that. As for the comments above – full of rage and odium, as is often the case when Catholicism is discussed in homosexual contexts – I simply hope their authors eventually find truth and peace in their lives.

  8. Back to the old witch hunting / persecuting / heretic days of old. They were very good at and old habits die hard.

    Difference has always been a problem for the Vatican.

  9. while chavvy under age girls continue to chuck out their spawn, the human race will survive lol

  10. Monks and nuns have always been a bit wayward and dangerous from the Vatican’s point of view (meditation and contemplation tend to show how silly arbitrary dogmas are). I well remember JP II’s sour face on a trip to the US in the early 80’s when a nun called for the ordination of women in his presence! Great stuff. Celibate religious (as opposed to the celibate heirarchs) often have a more relaxed attitude to sexuality than you might think.

  11. There is no need to worry about American nuns, they can take care of themselves splendidly. They have long understood their mission and they will not be intimidated by the Boys’ Club headed by one of history’s most unpopular popes who insists on making one blunder after another. The nuns know how to receive uninvited guests, and we may be about to witness the latest pontifical blunder which I hope makes it to YouTube.

    Flapjack: You have no idea how many times I have thought the same as you about the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. By taking a virtual tour of the Vatican museums, we also get a good look at the most beautiful full-length sculpted statues of absolutely gorgeous naked men. How can anybody walk through a place like that without feeling the juices flowing in the testicles, unless you’re a pope, I suppose. (I don’t mean to imply that the guy has castrated himself, I would never say a thing like that…who me???) Kudos to you, buddy.

    You know why always two Nuns accompany each other. It’s to make sure the other Nun gets nun!

  13. The nuns are teaching tolerance towards the homosexuals ? What a hideous sin !! Burn them !! Burn all them like the evil wicked witches they are !!
