Is This A Hookup Website For Catholic Priests?

The Italian press has uncovered Venerabilis, a website that unashamedly helps Roman Catholic priests and seminarians find same-sex partners.

Catholic blog Gloria explains (in between fainting spells of disbelief):

The Homo Sensitive Priestly Society -- Venerabilis in English -- claims to be a loose association of gay and homophile Catholic priests. The website serves as a gay dating site, so that aberrosexual priests can find contact among themselves, or homosexual laity can meet like-minded priests and vice versa. This page offers chat rooms in five languages, including in German, a Twitter service to the Catholic Church and some news from a “homo sensitive” view. The ads are unique. Anyone who registers on the Venerabilis and gives a personal ad or responds to one, seeks homosexual sexual contact.

It’s about finding sex partners. The homo-mafia in the Church obviously feels sufficiently strong and emboldened to operate almost in the open. This site is smart in that everyone operates under automatically generated IDs, but people are dumb and have left their personal e-mails all over the place. And, if the sodomite mafia is as well established and widespread as we think it is, then it would make sense that there would be a great concentration in Rome, for that is where the levers of power are located.
