Apr. 13, 2013 (TSR) – Can the Catholic Church just come out of the closet already so they do not need to be stress and spend too much money on public relations in hiding the obvious?
The Vatican’s department of missionary activities recently paid $35 million to house its officials within a building that also contains Europa Multiclub, an anonymous men’s hookup club dubbed as Italy’s top erotic gay sauna according to BBC:
A historic palazzo in Rome that houses a key Vatican department is also the home of a well-known gay sauna.
The Holy See paid 20m euros (£17.5m) in 2008 for around 20 apartments in the building for the Congregation for the Evangelisation of Peoples.
Its Prefect Emeritus, Cardinal Ivan Dias, is one of the priestly residents.
The proximity to Europa Multiclub, billed as Italy’s top gay sauna, has drawn comment due to the Vatican’s strict stance on gay partnerships.
The facility boasts a Turkish bath, Finnish sauna, whirlpools and massages.
Also on offer are “bear parties”, which are advertised on its website with a video of a man stripping down before donning clerical attire.
Bruno, “a hairy, overweight pastor of souls, is free to the music of his clergyman, remaining in a thong, because he wants to expose body and soul”, the website says.
The Vatican has declined to comment on the proximity of the sauna to the headquarters of the Congregation for the Evangelisation of Peoples – which is responsible for missionary activities – but Cardinal Dias has previously said that gays and lesbians can be cured of their “unnatural tendencies” through the “sacrament of penance”.
“Sacrament of penance”. Sounds like those who are into BDSM on a missionary position would say.
