Reports Say Pope May Have Resigned Over Dossier Linking Church To Gay Network Inside Vatican.

Forced out? Rumours are swirling that Pope Benedict XVI was compelled to retire by a damning official report
The Pope's resignation has been linked to a secret dossier from three cardinals claiming a 'gay network' inside the Vatican, it emerged today.They uncovered an underground network of senior clergy who have  organised gay homosexual parties and faced blackmail, according the the Italian newspaper La Repubblica.
The paper claims the explosive allegations were made in a report into the so-called 'Vatileaks' scandal which was presented to the Pontiff on or around December 17. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi has refused to confirm or deny the details of the report which came in two volumes, 'hard-bound in red' with the title 'pontifical secret.' It was compiled by Spanish cardinal, Julián Herranz; Cardinal Salvatore De Giorgi, a former archbishop of Palermo; and the Slovak cardinal Jozef Tomko.
They launched the probe after the Pope's butler, Paolo Gabriele, was arrested and charged with stealing and leaking papal correspondence revealing how the Vatican was a centre of intrigue and infighting. Now La Repubblica claims Pope Benedict XVI quit because could not face the repercussions of dealing with the 300-page dossier - the first Pontiff to resign in 700 years. The paper says that the investigation alleges  a gay lobby exists within the Church, and has some sort of control on the careers of those in the Vatican. The report is quoted as saying: 'The cardinals were said to have uncovered an underground gay network, whose members organise sexual meetings in several venues in Rome and Vatican City, leaving them prone to blackmail.'They included a villa outside the Italian capital, a sauna in a Rome suburb, a beauty parlour in the centre, and a former university residence that was in use by a provincial Italian archbishop.' La Repubblica says that the cardinals described a number of 'factions' in their report, including one in which individuals were 'united by sexual orientation'. The newspaper also alleges the dossier states that members of this group were blackmailed by laymen with whom they entertain relationships of a 'worldly nature'.
