Vatican hosts Europes biggest Gay Sauna

Wem gehört das Gebäude, in dem die größte schwule Sauna in Europa sitzt? Selbstverständlich: Dem Vatikan. Und zufälligerweise wohnen im selben Haus nicht nur Kurienkardinal Ivan Dias, sondern ganze 18 weitere Priester des Vatikans. Ich schätze mal, die Jungs können ein paar Sachen über den schwulen Geheimclub in der katholischen Kirche erzählen.

A day ahead of the papal conclave, faces at the scandal-struck Vatican were even redder than usual after it emerged that the Holy See had purchased a €23 million (£21 million) share of a Rome apartment block that houses Europe’s biggest gay sauna. […]

76-year-old “prince of the church” [Cardinal Ivan Dias, the head of the Congregation for Evangelisation of Peoples,] enjoys a 12-room apartment on the first-floor of the imposing palazzo, at 2 Via Carducci, just yards from the ground floor entrance to the steamy flesh pot. There are 18 other Vatican apartments in the block, many of which house priests. […]

The sauna’s website promotes one of its special “bear nights”, with a video in which a rotund, hairy man strips down before changing into a priest’s outfit. It says 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”.

As cardinals gather to elect Pope, Catholic officials break into a sweat over news that priests share €23m building with huge gay sauna (via Arbroath)
