Droppings from the Catholic Birdcage: Secrets of the Vatican and the Sexual Hypocrisy in Benedict's Own House

Patricia Miller on "Secrets of the Vatican" and its confirmation of a "don't ask, don't tell" gay subculture in the Vatican, which may have figured in Pope Benedict's decision to resign the papacy:

There’s a certain satisfying irony to the fact that the man who spent his life crusading against what he saw as the corrupting influence of moral relativism and the concomitant push for reproductive and LGBT rights (Ratzinger declared as head of the CDF that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered" and therefore homosexuality could never be moral) was brought to his knees by the knowledge of the sexual hypocrisy within his own house.

"Secrets of the Vatican" is last night's "Frontline" documentary that I mentioned in a previous posting this morning.
