Pope Enraged after Vatican Cops Bust Drug-Fueled Gay Sex Party2 min read

The Vatican is seeing red over the bust of a drug-fueled gay orgy at the home of an aide to Pope Francis’ key advisors

Vatican police discovered men feasting on drugs and having a sex party during a raid on an apartment inside the Palace of the Holy Office, as reported by Il Fatto Quotidiano. As gay sex is not illegal in the Vatican, the aide was most likely arrested on possession of illegal drugs.

After the bust, the aide has been arrested and taken in secrecy to the Roman Piux XI detox clinic. He is currently on a spiritual retreat at a convent in Italy.

The apartment where Cardinal Franceso Coccopalmerio’s secretary lives belongs to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, which is the branch dedicated to tackling clerical sex abuse.

A neighbor tipped off Vatican Police to multiple men coming and going at night

Vatican police were tipped off in late June after a neighbor complained about a constant coming and going of multiple men from the main entrance in the evening. The main entrance of the building opens directly onto the square of the Holy Office, which is in Italian territory and not controlled by the Vatican, which was ideal for men to enter the building without too much scrutiny. As for transporting the drugs, the aide drove a luxury car with a license plate of the Holy See—a comfort that allowed him to drive in without submitting to a security check.

The aide was recommended to become a bishop

Pope Francis is understandably “enraged” and is fast-tracking Cardinal Franceso Coccopalmerio into retirement according to the Italian press. The Cardinal had recommended his aide to be promoted to bishop, but the appointment has been canceled.
