Skip to comments.Vatican Rocked by Leak of 300-Page Dossier
Posted on 09/13/2018 3:48:21 PM PDT by detective
The Vatican is reeling from news that the 300-page dossier containing names of members of the gay lobby a dossier some believe led to Pope Benedict's resignation in 2013 has been leaked to the media.
Il Fatto Quotidiano, an Italian journal read by Vatican officials, is confirming it has seen the 300-page dossier. "The report contains a detailed and disturbing picture of the moral and material corruption of the clergy, with names, surnames and circumstances," writes Francesca Fagnani.
We are ... able to view a document on papal letterhead included in the investigation, and here we publish an excerpt: It is a list of prelates and laymen who belong to the so-called gay lobby, which through blackmail and secrets could affect, or have conditioned, positions and careers (theirs, like those of others).
We will not reveal the names shown in the list, but we can confirm that among the names there are people removed by the Pope, others moved from office, others who still hold important positions in strategic organs for the Vatican, such as Propaganda Fide and even the Secretariat of State.
Among those implicated in the dossier is none other than Cdl. Kevin Farrell, prefect of the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life, who has repeatedly claimed he knew nothing of former housemate Abp. Theodore McCarrick's homosexual predation, although they lived together on the same floor of the same house for six years in Washington, D.C.

[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.
Good find, detective.
Root them out.
Purge the Church.
Come, Holy Spirit!
May it all come crashing down. The Holy Spirit will rebuild His Church with these rotten timbers removed.
Prayers up for Holy Mother Church.
So connect the dots for us. How did this lead to Pope Bennedicts Removal? Was it because he mismanaged the control of this scandal or that the gay mafia ganged up on him and forced him to step down or some other iteration?
Pope Benedict’s sudden resignation in 2013 is allegedly linked to the 300-page dossier; some media reported that Benedict chose to resign the same day he received the dossier, the result of findings of an investigation commissioned by the Holy Father into clerical corruption and malfeasance.
My question also. Strange that the article didn't offer some explanation. I wondered if Benedict was so disheartened by the reality that he simply quit.
The Pope is elected by Cardinals, and many Cardinals are accused of sexual improprieties, or covering them up, you have to wonder how this affected the Cardinals votes where they would want a Pope sympathetic to their predations. - Tom
Pope Benedicts health was failing, and he did not think he was up to the task of cleaning up the filth described in the report. This is completely believable to me.
Benedict is a brilliant man, but does not have a lot of administrative skills. It has also been reported that his own Secretary of State, Cardinal Bertone, was actively working against him.
Bertone was the number 2 man in the Curia under Benedict. My guess is that he was blackmailing certain prelates known to be active homosexuals, who often were also prodigious fundraisers. Basically, the Curia have been practicing a modern version of simony, the same kind of corruption that so inflamed the Protestant Reformers.
Extracts from the article:

The investigation, itself, ...is said to have uncovered sins involving sex and financial corruption.
“The investigation of the three cardinals Herranz-Tomko-De Giorgi has so far remained top secret,”
“If the public were aware of the content of the final report it would be a disaster for the image of the Church, already devastated in the whole world by sexual scandals,” she added.
The hope after Benedict’s resignation was that a younger, stronger pope would be elected to help clean up the Church; thus Francis was chosen with the understanding he’d be a man of reform. But under his papacy, some senior clergy believe conditions have worsened, not improved.
...compounded further by the shock of Abp. Carlo Maria Vigano’s testimony revealing an entrenched “homosexual current” in the Church in the highest ranks, reaching even up to Pope Francis himself.
i hate to point out the obvious but if all this child abuse isn’t cleaned up SOON, then countries, states, police are going to shut down the RC Church as a dangerous criminal conspiracy, gang...
these problems appear to have gotten way way out of hand, and have been so for years already
why won’t the Church do the necessary confidential investigations ....clear anyone falsely charged.. .and then DRAIN the rest of the (guilty) Swamp????
“but if all this child abuse isnt cleaned up”
The major problem isn’t child abuse. The problem is ordinary, garden-variety homosexuality. The victims are male adolescents and young men, often seminarians.
Simply, sodomy simony.
“male adolescent victims”...
well, that sounds close enough to child abuse to need cleaning up, imho
It all should be extremely unsettling to the average Roman Catholic person who not only identifies as Roman Catholic but actively attends church regularly (the ones who have the most sincere church life). It, together with the religious approach of Francis as Pope, and his own failings on matters of sexual improprieties in Latin American make for conditions that can strike the non-Catholic as reminiscent of the “scandalous” church that set Luther and other theologians off on the reformation.
There is a True Christian Church that is not infested with Sodomites, and the gates of hell do not control it! It is the one that meets in small non-denominational groups, home churches, prayer groups, and bible studies. It has, and always will, exist outside of Rome.
