"Pope Benedictís handsome male companion will continue to live with him" [View all]


Pope's Living Arrangements Are a Little, Er, Weird
Andrew Sullivan thinks Benedict and male secretary are in 'some kind of love'

(Newser) Ė Andrew Sullivan thinks the strangest part of Pope Benedict's post-papal plans is that he will go on living with Georg Gaenswein, his longtime personal secretary at the Vatican, even as Gaenswein serves the new pope. "So Benedictís handsome male companion will continue to live with him, while working for the other Pope during the day," writes Sullivan at his Dish blog. "Are we supposed to think thatís, well, a normal arrangement?"

Citing previous articles on the subject, Sullivan concludes that Gaenswein is "clearly in some kind of love with Ratzinger (and vice versa)" and says the arrangement smacks more of Melrose Place than the Vatican. Click for the full post. Or head to conservative site Twitchy as it rounds up the fast-coming reaction under the headline, "Utter disgrace: Andrew Sullivan gay-baits Pope Benedict XVI."
