The entrance to the Europa Multiclub gay sauna is marked by classy phallic topiary.
The club’s proximity to a prince of the church was yet another reminder of the #$%$ scandals that are tarnishing the cross.
Last week, Scotland’s Keith Cardinal O’Brien resigned and admitted to improper “sexual conduct.”
And weeks before Pope Benedict announced his resignation, he received a report that revealed high-ranking clergy were frequenting gay orgies at a Rome sauna, a suburban Rome villa and a beauty parlor, according to Italian reports.
Vatican owns building that houses cardinals and Europe’s biggest gay bathhouse
Ivan Cardinal Dias lives upstairs from Europa Multiclub. Vatican owns the majority stake in the apartment building.
NY daily news.
The fact that this Cardinal lives above a popular gay bathhouse is not proof that he invites people up, but really.... Also, the fact that the recently-resigned Pope has had the same boyfriend, er, secretary for 30 years, and he happens to be drop-dead gorgeous doesn't mean there's any hanky-panky, but really... The Catholic Church (and by extension the Tea Party and the Republicans) are so hypocritical it's amazing that they can call themselves Christians with a straight face (no pun intended).
