The Leaked Story of a Sodomite Orgy in the Vatican
Drugs and Sodomy in the Vatican
According to an article which first appeared on 28 June in the Italian newspaper, Il Fatto Quotidiano, Vatican police, alerted to strange shenanigans going on in the flat of a monsignor, a man who was the secretary of a senior Roman Catholic cardinal, raided the flat and broke up a drug-fuelled homosexual party. The flat, which is in the Vatican itself, is not far from the Santa Marta residence of the pope of Rome, Francis I. It is in the Palazzo del Sant’Uffizio, which belongs to the Vatican’s “Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith” – which used to be known as the Inquisition. Be it noted, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is the very institution in charge of supposedly dealing with priestly sex abuse cases!
Neighbours living in the building had complained of the “constant coming and going” of young men, and of noisy parties being held in the flat.
The Italian article said that the secretary was also entrusted with a luxury car with Vatican number plates, which enabled him to transport the drugs into the Vatican without being troubled by Vatican or Italian police.
The Vatican reacted – apparently by hustling the offender off into a “retreat”! The monsignor was taken for detox at a medical facility, and was later said to be “in retreat” in a monastery somewhere in Italy. This is usual Vatican practice when one of their own is bust in some scandal of a sexual nature – he is hustled off to some secret location.
Then on 30 June, in a piece published on a French website, the monsignor-secretary was named: he was Luigi Capozzi. And so it came out that Capozzi’s boss is the Romish cardinal, Francesco Coccopalmerio. He is head of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, which makes him “like the Church’s Chief Justice, the chief interpreter of the Church’s laws.” A very influential man in the Vatican indeed. And surely he was not unaware of his secretary’s behaviour. As one high prelate commented: “Is it possible that he [Coccopalmerio) never noticed anything? Yet he often said that they [Coccopalmerio and Capozzi] worked together until late.” Certainly, considering how the monsignor was enjoying such benefits “above his pay grade” so to speak, it indicates that he was being protected by some very powerful authority figures within the Vatican itself.
But Is the Story True?
In the original article in the Italian newspaper, Il Fatto Quotidiano, “no named source whatsoever” was provided. No named sources to confirm the story; an unnamed secretary, who allegedly worked for an unnamed cardinal; no date given for the party; nothing about who actually sent the Vatican police to investigate and break up the party; no photographs of anything; no inventory of the drugs found at the party. To many, all these things indicate that the entire story was a fabrication. And yet it spread around the world like wildfire, being picked up by other media outlets.
However, there was a party, and it was broken up by the Vatican police. According to Robert Moynihan, author of The Moynihan Letters, highly respected in Roman Catholic circles as he is the editor of the influential magazine, Inside the Vatican: “I have now managed to confirm that some sort of a party did in fact take place, and that the Vatican police did come to investigate the party, entering a Vatican apartment where the party was being held, and breaking up the party. So, there seems a legitimate basis for an attempt to trace out at least part of the genesis and development of this story, though there still seems no reliable basis for any detailed presentation of the facts.”
We beg to differ with his last statement. Consider the facts:

Seers and Secrets, Deception and Delusion, and the Politics of Global Power
The famous apparitions of “Mary” at Fatima, a small town in northern Portugal, allegedly occurred on six occasions between May and October 1917, when “Mary” supposedly appeared to three child shepherds and entrusted them with three great messages (called “secrets”). The children were Lucia dos Santos, and siblings Francisco and Jacinta Marto. At the time when “Mary” supposedly appeared to them. Lucia was 10, Francisco 9, and Jacinta 7. Lucia became a cloistered nun in later years, but Francisco and Jacinta died at a very young age.
1917 occurred in the midst of World War One, a war such as the world had never experienced before. In that year the Roman pope, Benedict XV, appealed to the world for prayer for peace to be offered, not to Christ but to Mary, the Roman Catholic idol-goddess. A mere eight days later, on 13 May 1917, it was claimed that “Mary” appeared to the three children near Fatima. And it was during the “vision” of 13 July that the “three secrets” were supposedly given.
The cult of Fatima grew and spread very rapidly. The number of pilgrims was only 60 on 13 June 1917, but by October of that year it had shot up to 60 000. The number continued to rise, from 144 000 in 1923 to 588 000 in 1928.
The “Three Secrets” of Fatima, and the “Miracle of the Dancing Sun”
The “first secret” of the Fatima “revelations” was supposedly a vision of hell. Although they claimed this “vision” lasted only a moment, it shocked the three children so greatly that for the rest of their lives, we are told, they prayed for the conversion of sinners. “There were devils and souls submerged in a great sea of fire… between cries of pain and groans of despair. That horrified them and made them tremble with fear.”
The “second secret” of Fatima was, supposedly, a prophecy. “Mary” told the children that if men did not stop offending God, World War Two would begin. She also told them that Communism would expand, and that there would be persecution of the “Church” (the Roman Catholic institution) and of the pope of Rome himself. To prevent these evils, “Mary” asked for the devotion to her “Immaculate Heart” to be established in the world, and for the pope to consecrate Russia to her. Here, supposedly, are her words to the children:
“The war [the First World War, then raging] is going to end. But if people do not stop offending God, another and worse one will begin in the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illuminated by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign that God gives you that He is going to punish the world for its many crimes by means of war, hunger, and persecution of the Church [meaning the “Church” of Rome] and the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated…. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”
As for the “third secret” of Fatima, this was not revealed, but supposedly written down by Lucia many years later, and placed in a sealed envelope which was given to the Romish bishop of Fatima, only to be opened in the year 1960. But as this “third secret” was not revealed to the world by the pope until (so the Vatican claims) the year 2000, it will be analysed at the appropriate place in this article.
And then also, on 13 October 1917 – the date of the last of the six Marian apparitions at Fatima – the so-called “Miracle of the Sun” is alleged to have occurred. We are told, by Roman Catholic historians of Fatima, that some 70 000 people, who had gathered around the three children, witnessed this “miracle” for about ten to twelve minutes. Lucia pointed up and said, “Look at the sun”, and the immense crowd looked into the sky. The sun supposedly became pale; it spun three times on itself speedily, whirling and casting off great shafts of multi-coloured light; then it seemed to jump out of its orbit and come forward towards the people on a zig-zag course, causing them to cry out in terror and beg “Mary” to save them from their sins; then it stopped, and returned again to its normal position.
But were the Fatima “visions”, and the solar “miracle”, genuine?
The Pope of Rome and the Propaganda, taking into consideration the savage ignorance of Americans, deemed it prudent to substitute some other name for the usual name indulgences, and something else for the usual document specifying the nature of the indulgence which was given to pious sinners in “the New World:” they thought it possible that Yankees might have the curiosity to read the written indulgences. This, said they in their wisdom, must be prevented; and here is a case where our doctrine of pious frauds comes beautifully into play. After singing the “Veni Creator spiritus”—as usual in such cases—they resolved that indulgences should be in future called Scapulas, and thus piously enable all Roman Catholic priests and bishops to swear on the Holy Evangelists that no indulgences were ever sold in the United States. This is what holy mother calls pious fraud.

Shaun Willcock, Bible Based Ministries:
It is like something out of the Dark Ages. But it is unfolding right now in Ireland.
Whenever Protestants spoke or wrote in the past about how babies were discarded by nuns into unmarked graves, Rome always dismissed such allegations as nothing but Protestant “Rome-bashing”. But even today, evidence is surfacing that it really did happen – and not a few times, but multiplied hundreds of times.
In 2009, I wrote an article entitled A Mass Grave of Babies and the Lie of “Limbo”, in which I gave the details of a mass grave, in an unmarked site, of thousands of unwanted babies found at Milltown Cemetery, which is in predominantly Roman Catholic west Belfast, Northern Ireland. The babies buried there were children of Roman Catholics who died in infancy, before they could receive the Roman Catholic rite of “baptism”, between the 1940s and 1970s.
Now, in the last few years, a second mass grave has come to light, this time in Tuam, County Galway, in the Republic of Ireland. And it is estimated that this forgotten grave contains the remains of a staggering almost 800 babies!
The site is located at what was a home for unmarried mothers from the 1920s until the 1960s. During this forty-year period, infant mortality was very high. It is believed that many of the children died from malnutrition and infectious diseases. But here’s the shocker: the home was run by the Bon Secours Roman Catholic order of nuns!
Yes, nuns – those women who fool Papists and gullible Protestants alike with their mask of “sanctity” and “other-worldliness”. Those women who are considered, by millions, to be holy and godly, serving God. Those women who for centuries have been engaged in such works as nursing the sick and educating children. Surprise! – it turns out they are sinners like everyone else, and moreover, often even more heartless and cruel than others (this of course comes as no surprise to Christians who understand the horrible nature of Roman Catholicism and the kind of monsters it so often breeds behind the walls of convents and monasteries, but it comes as a huge surprise to the people of the world, so used to viewing nuns as “holy” women of God). Yes, of course there are nuns who are kind-hearted, caring, merciful and sweet (even though they are not true Christians); but this does not negate the fact that multitudes of them have been blind servants of the priests, hard and cruel women who have made life in convents a living death for so many poor girls trapped therein.
People who had once been residents at this nun-run home said they were treated very harshly. “Some of the children from the home would attend the local school,” said Catherine Corless, a local historian and genealogist, who was researching the home. “They were treated differently, went home earlier, and were all shipped off to an industrial school when they were around seven years old.”
How was the discovery made?

Climate of fear in Vatican is very real. Just one quote:
In his editorial in the upcoming December issue of LifeSite’s Faithful Insight magazine, John-Henry Westen relates more of what we discovered.
“… Catholic universities in Rome are watched and professors’ lectures screened to ensure they fall in line with a liberal interpretation of Amoris Laetitia. Clerics are reported to superiors if they are overheard expressing concerns about Pope Francis. Many are afraid to speak openly, even though in the past they were always very willing. Vatican reporters told us they were warned numerous times not to report on the dubia.”
