"Please brothers and sisters, let's try to not gossip," he said. "Gossip is a plague worse than COVID. Worse."

Cussing is worse than murder. A cold is worse than cancer. Adultery is worse than child rape.

It's about protecting child abusers, if you read TFA to the end. He wants to go back to the system of dealing with "issues" privately and discretely.  Pope, I am disappoint.

You forgot "condoms are worse than AIDS".

This is a church thoroughly devoid of morality or humanity.

If gossiping were banned, entire reality TV shows and networks would disappear overnight.

Sounds great to me.

All I know is that
There were rumours he was into field hockey players
There were rumours
So he applied basically
He was gone the next day
And went off with the team
It's like - he was got - they'd just like
It was like so hush hush
They were so quiet about it
And then the next thing you know.......

Do you remember when anti-Catholic propaganda was all like "Papists are secret Satanists" and not just a recounting of their sins that are a matter of public record?

There was a website message board forum called "Give Me Gossip". I think it got shut down because of a suicide. One that someone was gaslit into committing. How's that for a gossip about Gossip?

Gossip = Conspiracy Theories and Distrust of Media?  If so, then I kinda agree: that stuff got us Trump; Hillary might have halved the death count or better, and she would not have pushed the "Amicankkkans" vs ANTIFA / very fine people on both sides narrative.

Oh, my, God Becky, look at her plague 
It is so big, she looks like
One of those pagan guys' witches
But, ya know, who understands those pagan guys?
They only talk to her, because,
She looks like a total pestilence, 'kay?
I mean, her plague, is just so big
I can't believe it's just so deathly, it's like out there
I mean gross, look
She's just so, bubonic

He said relatively, that's enough to understand that yeah, some will always get it but less and less as time goes by.

While I didn't know it was a Pixies reference, I knew it WASN'T a BH reference. I just thought it was funny because i can't subconsciously NOT add it to the end of the phrase "And the next thing you know...."

That particular part of that particular song is pretty obscure.

I know some obscure Taylor Swift lyrics that you'd have to google to figure out.

If by gossip he means saying something about a third party you haven't said to their face, and if he means over all time and not 2020, then I agree.

I feel for BatPope right now.

When a workplace becomes toxic with gossip and backbiting it can consume people's lives.  Every waking moment of the day is spent fretting about what the repercussions of any trivial comment could be.
I would bet that this was in response to some super specific situation- like the Basilicas cleaning staff being run by a bunch of mean girls.

"On Wednesdays we wear pellegrina."

/Of course, I've never heard of a church community plagued by rumors and gossip.
