This OpEd by Rainbow Sash shouldn't have been given column inches.

And this just in... Eighteen high-level clergy live in Vatican-owned building that also houses Europe's largest gay sauna. And none of them noticed!

According to an ancient prophecy, the 112th pope, which this one will be, is predicted to the last pope. If you are indeed right, then it would make sense that having the pope "come out" will destroy the church. I'm sure LGBT's will be ecstatic about that even if you don't understand the role you played in it.

It's just that this piece is overstatement.

In other words, there've been gayer conclaves?

If that would destroy the Church, then it's too weak to survive anyway.

Well, reading that article consumed a couple of minutes of time I will never get back. This quote from the article describes the author as well, "The buffoonish grandstanding by some of the Cardinals.

This piece, and not a few others even in large media, referencing the meme about a "gay lobby" really don't know or "get" the RCC. The numbers and political perspective are pretty skewed when it comes to the top hierarchy. They don't represent the actual state of affairs, which doesn't resemble much of anything that the pundits have any familiarity with.

I just like making fun of the whole idea of a gay lobby in the Vatican...Then again, I think the Vatican is a joke at this point.
