Pope admits existence of a "gay lobby" in Vatican.

That's not a gay lobby.

This is a gay lobby:

Note the polished concrete floor, the double-newel floating stairwell with no finial and the exposed beam ceiling- really tasteful.

And this lobby

Is absolutely flaming.  This lobby probably takes other lobbies home, blows them, and then has forgotten their name by the next morning, and never calls.

Gay lobby?  I thought gays were all about the back door.

A bunch of gay men in fancy clothes duping the homophobic out of cash. It's a hell of a business plan.

Dunno?  Did Mick Jagger have to get his stomach pumped after fellating David Bowie and Henry Kissinger?

The Vatican is global headquarters for a religion that tells parents to hate their own kids.

Nuke, orbit, sure, etc.

Eff that place.

An all male hierarchy which provided a "respectable" cover for guys who didn't want to find a nice girl and settle down.  The fellas all like to dress up in frocks and lace; most of them think women and their bodies are icky and shouldn't be allowed in the club.   Was there really any doubt the vast majority of RC clergy are gay?!

Shocking that there would be a lot of gays in a vocation well known for centuries as a place for unwed young men to go and live out their lives.

Shocking.

What is this mysterious gay lobby you speak of?   People wanting equal rights?

A gay lobby? I don't believe it. A pedophile lobby, sure. But not a gay lobby.

The frescoes in the gay lobby aren't of St. Peter, they're all of St. Michael.

I did always wonder if the celibate priesthood persisted into the modern day in part as a way to encourage gay Catholics to join.  After all, it's a way in a culture based very strongly around getting married and reproducing for a man to completely eschew romance and sexuality with women, and be respectable at the same time).

Agree with you.  Also as being gay has become more accepted and understood as simply another variation on the human animal, it's the reason for the decline in vocations; especially in Europe etc.  Gay men no longer have to come up with the "I'd love a wife & family but I've been called to serve god" excuse for their relatives:)

Yeah, any variation of "front-to-back" is sort of have-a-seat-over-there worthy.

No gay lobby in the Vatican would be complete without some fetishistic portrayals of St. Sebastian:

I knew an LA guy who worked in porn (no, not an actor) in the 1980s who claimed all filming and distribution was run by  the mob, which had one rule: no gay porn.  Girl on girl was fine, but no homo dudes. Apparently a good way to get whacked, and not the good kind.

Honey Trimmins, I had absolutely no idea that this button was to the Gay Lobby.
I swear as God is my witness that I thought it meant Ground Floor.
And it was just then that my change murse broke and I lost at least $20 dollars in coins all over the floor.

I love (not really) how the pope describes the "gay lobby" as corruption. Not pedophile priests, no, that's apparently not corruption, just the gay thing. Or maybe as if gay is synonymous with pedo. UGH, makes me sick!
