VATICAN CITY (AP) — A Vatican official suspended after being caught on hidden camera making advances to a young man said in an interview published Sunday that he is not gay and was only pretending to be gay as part of his work.
In an interview with La Repubblica newspaper, Monsignor Tommaso Stenico said he frequented online gay chat rooms and met with gay men as part of his work as a psychoanalyst. He said that he pretended to be gay in order to gather information about ”those who damage the image of the Church with homosexual activity.”
In the Repubblica interview, Stenico said he had met with the young man and pretended to talk about homosexuality ”to better understand this mysterious and faraway world which, by the fault of a few people—among them some priests —is doing so much harm to the Church.”
Yeah, it’s about time the Vatican did something about all us gay men out here damaging the image of the Church through with our homosexual activity. Maybe a few burnings at the stake would convince us to stop jackhammering away at the image of the Church. But, oh, it’s difficult to enter our “mysterious and faraway” world—my goodness, you need an Internet connection and everything.
