Former Pope Benedict XVI has ginned up an odd arrangement with his sexy secretary, Monsignor Georg Gänswein, who has been compared to a cross between George Georg22Clooney and Hugh Grant. The sex symbol will continue to live with Benedict, while working for the new Pope during the day. This peculiar situation has the Internet abuzz, because there have long been rumors that the two men were gay, male, homosexual lovers (yeah, I’m using redundant shame words, because the Pope wouldn’t have it any other way)

According to Andrew Sullivan:

This man – clearly in some kind of love with Ratzinger (and vice-versa) will now be working for the new Pope as secretary in the day and spending the nights with the Pope Emeritus. This is not the Vatican. It’s Melrose Place.

If Ratzinger is truly in a gay, male, homosexual relationship, there will be a special place in hell waiting for him. His career has been marked by worldwide attacks on LGBT people so vicious, he makes Roy Cohn look like Harvey Milk. It is almost inconceivable that he launched those sickening salvos from the closet — and if this turns out to be the case, he can only be described as an awful human being.

This is the Internet age and secrets are more difficult to maintain. Maybe Larry Flynt could offer $5 million to anyone who has concrete evidence that the former Pope is living with his boyfriend, in a castle subsidized by the donations of Catholics across the globe.
