Disturbing news from the Vatican - stay tuned for more details.
If the government says gay marriage is legal. ..
And the R C Church says marriage is between a man and a woman. ...
Can gay priests marry one another?
Hello everyone and welcome to this Breaking News from Rome.
A scandal almost beyond imagination is about to crash over the Vatican.
It involves a homosexual prostitution ring with young teenage males and roughly 10-20roman clergy including according to initial reports .. and at least four bishops may somehow be involved.
Also related, the recruiter for the boy prostitution ring also stole consecrated hosts and sold them to Satanists in and around Rome.
All of this has come to light apparently based on the testimony provided to Rome police as well as video and pictures provided by a former priest convicted of sex abuse who tried to get reinstated as a priest after serving five years in Italian prison, but was refused by the Vatican.
Infuriated reports are he blew the whistle on the whole situation and took pictures, videos and even one of the former male prostitute boys as a corroborating witness.
And too add to his credibility, he was accompanied by two senior Vatican clergyman who vouched for his story to the police.
We cannot at this point confirm if the emergency meeting that was called at The Vatican two days ago by Pope Francis for the curial cardinals was related to this, so all we can ask is that you stand by for more reports as details come to light.
It seems apparent at this point that Rome authorities may soon be making some arrests and some of them may involve clergy with ties to the Vatican.
Reporting from Rome .. this is Michael Voris for CMTV suggesting we pray very earnestly for the Church at this point.
GOD Love you.
Indeed. This is going to break regardless, so Catholic journalists and bloggers might as well start covering it.
One slight error in the report..the scandal is NOT “almosy beyond imagination..”
You have to muck out the stable in order to keep the rest of the horses healthy.

THE Vatican is bracing itself for a rent boy scandal after a convicted pedophile priest apparently sought vengeance by informing on other child abusers in the Roman clergy.
Don Patrizio Poggi, who served a five-year sentence for abusing five 14 and 15-year-old boys at his parish on the outskirts of the Italian capital, has reportedly handed names to police. So far, four people have formally been placed under investigation by Rome magistrates.
The suspects are said to include a monsignor who is currently the secretary of an important bishop. Also being investigated is a former Carabinieri police officer suspected of recruiting under-age boys for the alleged prostitution ring.
The brewing scandal comes just weeks after Pope Francis confirmed the existence of a "gay lobby" in the Vatican to a visiting Latin American church group.
The apparent network inside the supposedly celibate and staunchly anti-homosexual Church is one reason why Pope Francis is working on a thorough house-cleaning of the Roman curia. Vatican watchers believe a far-reaching reshuffle of top posts is imminent. Cardinal Giuseppe Bertello, current head of the governorate that runs the Vatican city-state, is tipped to take over from the powerful but divisive Vatican secretary of state, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone.
The latest scandal traces its roots to the criminal case against Poggi, now 46, who was convicted in 1999 of abusing boys at his St Philip Neri church in the Rome suburb of Primavalle.
After serving his sentence, the disgraced priest sought reinstatement by the Vatican but was denied a post. In revenge, he is said to have gone to police with one of the alleged "rent boys" serving priests.
According to Italian press reports, Poggi named 20 people as being involved in the prostitution ring.
Once the Holy Father is done dealing with “the sisterhood” in Rome, he needs to address it, in the US.
Serving and former priests hired rentboys for sex in churches from pimp who sold consecrated hosts to satanists, says defrocked clergyman.
Boy is that good. The light he is turned to is the fiery glow of hell, I presume. Really magnificent.
Another quote of Liberace’s is:
Successfully sued the London “Daily Mirror” in 1959 after it published an article by columnist “Cassandra” which said that Liberace was “fruit-flavoured” (gay), which he strongly denied in court and insisted that homosexuality was an “abomination”.
Evidently, he was right.
Many, many prayers for Pope Francis, and please Dear Lord, keep Michael Voris safe too.
. . . beyond this great vision of the suffering of the Pope, which we can in the first instance relate to John Paul II, are indicated future realities of the Church which are little by little developing and showing themselves. Thus it is true that beyond the moment indicated in the vision, it is spoken, it is seen, the necessity of a passion of the Church . . .
As for the new things that we can discover in this message today, there is also the fact that attacks on the Pope and the Church do not come only from the outside, but the sufferings of the Church come precisely from inside the Church, from the sin that exists in the Church. This too we have always seen, but today we see in a really terrifying way that the greatest persecution of the Church does not come from external enemies, but is born of sin in the Church, from the sin that exists in the Church...
Oh dear God.
