Italian Media have unearthed details of the much sought-after secret dossier compiled during the last months of Pope Benedict's pontificate, which names various names, uncovering the homosexual network operating within the Vatican and around the globe.
These revelations now threaten to shake the Francis papacy to its very foundations.
At a time when Francis and his inner circle have already been rocked by a non-stop flow of charges that senior Church officials — including Francis himself — have covered up sexual abuse of minors and young adults abuse mostly homosexual in nature, this latest revelation drops on Rome like a nuclear explosion.
Church Militant, along with multiple media outlets, reported back in late 2012 that a 300-page dossier revealing the existence of the gay lobby had been delivered to Pope Benedict in response to what had been called the Vatileaks affair.
Three cardinals had been appointed by Benedict to get to the bottom of the leaks and during that investigation, the three cardinals came across credible information about the homosexual lobby in the Vatican and changed the direction of their report accordingly. They presented their final dossier to Pope Benedict in two red leather-bound volumes, and a few months later he resigned.
Now, almost six years later, the Italian media outfit
Il Fatto Quotidiano, a respected media outlet has published a story saying they have seen the dossier and it is extensively damaging to the Pope and especially Cdl. Kevin Farrell.
Here are three quotes — translated from the original Italian by Church Militant — from the article detailing very important information about the dossier:
[A case] on the auxiliary bishop of Washington, Kevin Joseph Farrell is said to have been filed at the Congregation for the Doctrine for the Faith in the Vatican, at the dicastery that is responsible for investigating sexual and other crimes against good morals, which, if not rebutted, would fall squarely on the Pope like a boulder. Farrell [was] appointed directly by Bergoglio to head the Dicastery of the Family.
That, of course, would directly implicate Pope Francis in promoting yet another man into a position of power when even though he had advance knowledge of moral crimes — the first being Theodore McCarrick, who was the housemate of Cdl. Farrell when they were together in Washington, D.C.
A second quote from the Italian article:
The report contains a detailed and disturbing picture of the moral and material corruption of the clergy, with names, surnames and circumstances. We were exceptionally able to examine a document on papal letterhead contained in the investigative report, whence we here publish an excerpt: it is a list of prelates and laymen who belong to the so-called gay lobby, which, by means of blackmail and secrets, could condition, or have conditioned, positions and careers.
The article explicitly states for the first time it has been revealed on papal letterhead that the Vatican itself admits of a powerful gay lobby within its own walls.
And a third quote from the article:
If the public were to become cognizant of the content of the final report, it would be a disaster for the image of the Church, already devastated by sexual scandals throughout the whole world. ... [And now] Francis cannot even count on some of his most powerful friends and supporters, overwhelmed by sex scandals themselves or for having covered up such behavior: from McCarrick to Farrell, from Cardinal Roger Mahony to Cardinal Godfried Danneels.
When the newspaper questioned the Vatican for comment, they were told in yet another stonewalling effort from churchmen, "There will be no communication."
To show the great fear that has gripped the Vatican as a result, consider the title of the article: "Shock in the Vatican: All the Names on the List of the Gay Lobby."
Consider that in the space of less than three weeks, the Pope has had his former U.S. ambassador Abp. Viganò publicly testify that the Pope knew about McCarrick's evil and lifted sanctions against him anyway; has worked quietly behind the scenes to formulate as graceful an exit plan as possible for the now disgraced Cdl. Donald Wuerl; had to, just today, announce the retirement of an American bishop credibly accused of sexual immorality; had to meet with a delegation of American cardinals and bishops today who are wanting a full-blown investigation into Viganò's claims about the Pope and other senior churchmen.
And then, of course, this, Pope Francis and his homosexualist cabal in Rome may begin to feel like the walls of the Vatican are starting to close in on them.
It's just after midnight in Rome right now as of this Church Militant live report, and Church Militant will have much more for you tomorrow and in the coming days on this news, which can only be classified as devastating for the Francis pontificate.
