Certain Sins Bring Infestation of Demons: Horrid Sodomite “Parties” Close to the Most Important Places in the Vatican

. . .a pro-life news site reports a close collaborator of Pope Francis, formerly head of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, Francesco Cardinal Coccopalmerio, was presiding over the drug & sodomy party in an apartment of the Palazzo Sant’Uffizio (where the CDF & Ecclesia Dei are also housed) where one of the partakers had an overdose.  When the Vatican gendarmes or police were called, they had Cocco skedaddle before they got officially to work. . .

The Misplaced Priorities of Youth Synod Organizers

. . .reading through the Instrumentum Laboris (IL), the working document for the Youth Synod, one gets the impression that the biggest challenge young people face in life is discovering their sexuality.  Fortunately, the Synod Fathers stand ready to “accompany” youth on their journey of self-discovery wherever it may lead.  The bishops have a particular solicitude for LGBT youth who “face inequality & discrimination” because of “sexual orientation” (48). . .
