We have the latest sex scandal to take over the Vatican (that’ll probably be swept under the rug like all the others).
A gay escort working near Naples, Italy has released a list of 34-40 priests and seminarians that he’s had interactions with.
Through a 1,200-page dossier, gay escort Francesco Mangiacapra has tried to accuse the multiple priests of having gay sex (or, at least, attempting to). That said, he wanted to point out that none of the men are pedophiles, just hypocrites.
"We’re talking about sins, not crimes,” as the Associated Press heard from him.
To back up these claims, the dossier contains WhatsApp chats and other evidence.
The evidence seemed so plausible that the archdiocese of Naples eventually sent the dossier over to the Vatican.
As the Associated Press reports:
“In a statement on the diocesan website, Cardinal Cresenzio Sepe said none of the identified priests worked in Naples. But he said he decided to forward the file to the Vatican because ‘there remains the gravity of the cases for which those who have erred must pay the price, and be helped to repent for the harm done.”
