Vatican police have raided a cardinal's apartment where a drug-fuelled homosexual orgy was taking place.

Police entered an apartment at the former palace of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (or Holy Office) last month, not far from the Vatican City.

The occupant of the apartment is alleged to be a priest who serves as a secretary to cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, the head of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts and a personal adviser to the Pope.

The allegations of the orgy were first published by newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano.

 

According to the paper, neighbours became suspicious before complaining about irregular behaviour of those coming and going at the apartment.

When police showed up at the apartment, they reportedly found drugs and a group of men engaged in sexual activity.

The priest was then arrested and taken for questioning.

Il Fatto Quotidiano suggested that Pope Francis was infuriated by the news and may force Coccopalmerio into retirement.

The alleged orgy is symptomatic of a difficult period for the Pope. Four years into his papacy the Catholic Church appears racked by conflict and scandal.

Critics blame the Pope's choice of personnel: cardinal George Pell, appointed to clean up the Vatican's murky finances, has taken a leave of absence to defend himself against sex abuse charges in Australia.

Title and content are not "synced". While title refers to "cardinal's apartment", the article is talking about the occupant of the apartment, alleged to be a priest who serves as a secretary to cardinal. It's not clear if the cardinal is involved in any way in these orgy, or if actually, the apartment is his or of his secretary. Is he just responsible for having a "too-gay" secretary, which, of course, makes him also responsible for not selecting correctly some key personnel?

The Vatican’s Swiss Guards Break Up a Drug-Fueled Gay Orgy...


in Pope Francis’ Backyard

 

Nosy neighbors are never a good thing. Especially if you are a monsignor hosting orgies and your neighbors are cardinals.


ROME—It all started with the usual complaints from disgruntled neighbors: funny smells, slamming doors, loud music, the sound of squeaky beds and laughter late into the night. In almost any other situation anywhere in the world, the angry neighbors would have confronted the noisy tenant, maybe left a mean note on the door or complained to the landlord and the matter would be settled.

 

But this particular dispute occurred in one of the most prestigious addresses in Rome, the so-called Ex Sant’Uffizio Palace, in the very apartment owned by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith where Joseph Ratzinger lived for decades before becoming Pope Benedict XVI. The palatial ochre-colored building is home to dozens of high-ranking cardinals who live within walking distance of their jobs at the Roman Curia in Vatican City next door.

 

The fed-up neighbors were simply sick of what they described as a “steady stream of young men” who frequented Ratzinger’s former apartment, which had been given to Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, the secretary for Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, who heads the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, which busies itself with deciphering and clarifying various points of canon law. So they called the cops, in this case the Vatican’s elite Swiss Guard gendarmerie unit, when the noise and movida nightlife just got to be too much.

 

The Vatican police showed up to find an orgy in progress, with an untold number of naked men allegedly writhing around the floor with Capozzi and his cohorts, who were apparently under the influence of hard drugs according to the Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano which broke the story that a host of Italian and international media have since picked up.

 

Calls to the Swiss Guard turned up neither confirmations nor denials, but Capozzi is no longer at his job, according to the switchboard operator at his boss’ office.

 

According to the unconfirmed, yet wildly salacious reports, the gendarmerie kicked everyone out and took Capozzi straight to a detox center in the hills outside of Rome. He is now supposed to be at a convent outside of Rome where wayward priests go to repent. He will face misdemeanor drug charges, say the local papers, but orgies aren’t illegal and there were no underage boys on the premises when the bust took place so he will not face sex-related charges.

 

Capozzi could be defrocked for his indiscretion, but that seems unlikely even though he would have clearly broken the vow of celibacy. His boss Cardinal Coccopalmerio has already replaced him and will not face any disciplinary measures for hiring such a promiscuous clerk.

 

 

The cardinal is in no way implicated in the scandal, but he is expected to resign from his position next year when he turns 80, as is the custom. His office did not return calls for this story.

 

This latest salacious headline, which has become all-too-common when it comes to priests behaving badly, is said to have angered Pope Francis, who considers Coccopalmerio a close aid.

 

It comes on the heels of last week’s news that the pope’s finance czar, Cardinal George Pell, is facing criminal sex abuse charges for alleged crimes during his time as a priest in Australia.

I'm glad I'm not christian but also religion discrimination is truly stupidity. not like a religion is good an other is bad, if it's bad then all of them are bad. but the truth is religion isn't a bad thing, only the people enforcing it are not good, look at the pope, just a puppet played by puppeteers, he has no power.
