Child pornography at the Vatican. The guardian.com
Also drug trafficking, money laundering. Cocaine-stuffed condoms. Oh wait - I thought the Catholic Empire was against condoms?
"only six people ended up in the Vatican’s prison last year (including)...an Italian protester who climbed atop St Peter’s Basilica, and...a Femen activist who bared her breasts and grabbed a baby Jesus statue from the Vatican’s nativity scene."
Puerto Rico pastor Jose Santiago outed as former gay porn guy (I hate to use the term "actor" or "star"). Multiple stores on google. All basically the same. There are some links in the comments on Joe.my.god blog, in case no one knows what a gay porn guy does. Warning, it involves being naked and doing stuff with other naked guys and is very not safe for work unless you are a republican congressman or catholic priest.
'In those days I was gay and participated in homosexual activities, but God touched me, God transformed me, God gave me a woman who loves me and she loves my past"
Stories claim he is anti-gay, but it looks to me more like he's an opportunist with internalized homophobia. Headlines also list him as a priest, but he's married and looks to be more a minister of a protestant offshoot. All makes for more exciting headlines, I guess. He claims, of course, that his god saved him from gay porn.
He's not the first to do that transition. The Reverend Bobby Blake takes a different approach, using his porn past as a way to attract attention and make money, while at the same time being against marriage equality (no links to explicit stuff provided here - that would violate terms of service).
There seems to be an entire genre of others who have made similar transitions from adult film industry to christian proselytizing industry.
>never be an end to the catholic war on humanity.
And [the priests] did not know how to love their God except by crucifying man.

Italy: Rome recognizes civil unions; Catholic Church decries ‘anti-family itinerary’
Rome this week began to register same-sex civil unions. “Today the capital of Italy gives the signal that, in this city, love is the same for everyone,” cheered Marino Sindaco. (Translation courtesy of Google.) No cheers from the Catholic Church, which disparaged the move as an “ideological bluff.” Pink News reports that the editor of the website for the Rome diocese called the civil unions vote “a symbolic stage in an anti-family itinerary that opens up disturbing horizons damaging children.”
France: Anti-gay Catholic group buys neighboring gay bar at auction
An anti-gay Catholic organization, The Missions of Divine Mercy, bought at bankruptcy auction a gay bar in the city of Toulon. The group put out a statement that said in part, “The important of this place for the evangelization of the neighborhood is clear. The bar of Sodom will now become the pub of Mercy.”
Related: new research shows that transgender children as young as 5 years old are nearly indistinguishable on psychological gender-association tests from cisgender children of the same gender identity.
The study, Gender Cognition in Transgender Children, from the University of Washington, says, "Our results support the notion that transgender children are not confused, delayed, showing gender-atypical responding, pretending, or oppositional"; "transgender children do indeed exist and that this identity is a deeply held one."
The tests included an Implicit Association Test, which measures responses that are faster by milliseconds when concepts are unconsciously paired together.
Lead author Kristina Olsen was expecting to find a difference "between the degree to which a transgender girl associated herself with girls — compared to cisgender girls — simply because, for part of that transgender girl’s life, other people called her a boy." "I had this wrong interpretation that it was a switch. But for them, that is who they are and have [always] been."

What an existential dilemma - having to vote for either a non-white person or a non-male. What to do . . . .
