Given all of the ‘over the top’ and MAINLY MISGUIDED media prattle last week about the Catholic Church’s new found desire (NOT) to welcome gays it is coincidental, or ironic, that Paul VI is the ONLY pope, at least over the last 400 years, that had felt a need to PUBLICLY deny that he was gay. Here are two ‘links’. Read them. Make up your own minds.
But a very interesting juxtaposition for those of us that try to read the Vatican’s chicken entrails to see if there can ever be anything new under the Sun from Rome.
Just doing my job as a papal historian. No axes to grind. Just making sure that others who are not as familiar with papal history as I am, know the facts.
