There is a breaking story that the Popes unheard of resignation actually has to do with the pedophile priest cover up rather than his statement released, health issues.
It seems that with his resignation announced, the Pope, whose given name is Joseph Ratzinger, has a meeting with the Italian President, Giorgio Napolitano on February 23 to beg for immunity against prosecution for allegations of child sex crimes. Apparently, this hastily arranged meeting, and likely the resignation as well, are the result of a supposed note received by the Vatican from an undisclosed European government that stated that there are plans to issue a warrant for the Pope’s arrest. This letter was allegedly received on February 4, and Ratzinger resigned a week later. Now, there’s no way people can ignore how fishy this is. The first Pope to resign in 600 years does so after panicking about an impending arrest and in the midst of a hastily arranged meeting begging for protection from the Italian government? .
A gay can only dream that this is true. What a blow to the scumbag catholic church if these rumors prove to be true.
Now this is a great way to start a Sunday!!
Update: Queerty is reporting that this story is completely MADE UP… Oh well it was fun while it lasted.
