Since the Search function is still busted, I can't find the thread from a year or two ago, that names Benedict's b'friend and links to a photo of Teh Hotness. I even did a Google search for Datalounge "pope benedict," but no luck. Help, please? TIA!

In an interview in July 2006, he described the Pope's day: "The Pope's day begins with Mass at 7am, followed by morning prayer and a period of contemplation. Afterwards we eat breakfast together, and my day then begins with sorting through the correspondence, which arrives in considerable quantity." He said that he accompanied Benedict to morning audiences, followed by lunch together, a "short walk," and a rest, after which he "[presents] to the Pope documents which require his signature, or his study and approval."

Is John Paul II gay too?

Mwah, guys--thanks! I did Google "pope's boyfriend," but should have left Datalounge out of the search string.%0D %0D Thanks again. A gay friend who left the Church was shocked when I told him about Ratzy's man. I wanted to show him the DL thread, but your replies give me what I need.

I don't think JP II was gay but he was into SM. Seriously. He had himself flagellated. Yikes.

So R9, when you chose to open and read a thread titled "The Pope's Hot Boyfriend," were you expecting to find reverence?
Then why did you make that choice?

I wonder historically how many popes had similar arrangements? I would say MANY if you ask me.
|by Anonymous||reply 18||08/11/2010|
Most, r18. Except the ones who were exclusively into little boys. And the rare few that fucked women (or little girls).%0D %0D The idea that these men are celibate is laughable.

r3, actually, the Pope's day begins with Fr. George, sliding back the Holy Prepuce while administering to His Holiness the rite of the Kiss of Peace.

About Pope Paul V's boyfriend from the December 2007 newsletter 'Men Who Danced'. Image at link.
Paolo Carlini was a well-known Italian actor (especially on film); amongst his credits, he co-starred with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Roman Holiday. He was also the boyfriend, at one time, of the Pope (Pope Paul).
I worked with him for six months on a musical in Italy in the 1970s. I replaced someone who dropped out in the first weeks of rehearsal and on the first days rehearsal almost everyone told me, "You know the Pope's boyfriend is in this show?". It was a very open secret . In fact, one of the actresses, ***** *****, used to give Paolo a lift in her car to the Pope's apartment (if palaces can be so called), years earlier, when he was Archbishop of Milan.
After the show ended, I was working in Portugal (summer of 1975), and opened my copy of Newsweek one day to find the Fench author, Roger Peyrefitte, had exposed this affair without naming Paolo's name, but stating that it was a famous Italian movie actor, and was an open secret in certain circles. He had done this being infuriated by the statement the Pope had recently given, publicly condemning, masturbation, premarital sex and homosexuality. Which Peyrefitte obviously regarded as hypocritical of a high degree.
Paolo Carlini, was a talented and charismatic actor. The fact we found ourselves in Italy's biggest musical and well publicised flop at the time does not detract from this. He was also a gracious, friendly and charming man. I didn't know him when he met the Pope to be, but I'll take any bet he didn't wear make-up to disguise a beard! And he was far from effeminate.
Okay, I've stood on this soapbox long enough. I could only find two references to this love affair online and one of them on, as I've said, a bigoted little site, and wanted to add my own real experience's of working with the Pope's lover. Which was a pleasure. If I had any more salacious anecdotes, you can rest assured I'll wait for an advance and a signed contract before setting them down (smile)!

The actor Edmund Purdom (The Student Prince) was rumored to have been another who had been there, done that when he was Archbishop of Milan. At least that's what a contessa who lived in the heart of Roman society told a friend of mine.

Father Gaye Gayerson, the Pope's Personal Private Fluffer Assistant said, "The Pope's day begins with Mass at 7am, followed by morning prayer and a period of constipation. Afterwards we eat each other out, and my day then begins with sorting through the correspondence, which arrives in considerable quantity." He said that he accompanied Benedict to morning audiences, followed by lunch together, a "performance by actors from Prague (and you know that that means)," and a rest, after which he "[presents] to the Pope his freshly powdered butt for the Pope to finger."

Wow, thanks for that, R21. I had no idea that inside the dull Paul VI, such deep and passionate waters ran.
Searching further, I found this little scandalous blurb w/pics (headlined "Paolo VI col marito, l'attore Paolo Carlini [Paul VI with her husband, actor Paolo Carlini]"):
|by Anonymous||reply 27||08/13/2010|
it's not "with her husband" -- it's "with the husband" -- technically you can't say "her" as a possessive in Italian.
|by Anonymous||reply 28||08/14/2010|
Wasn't the pope before Paul VI also gay? I forget his name. Fat and cheery.
But then I guess most of them have been.

I wonder if the Pope gets nasty when he catches the others in Vatican City making eyes at Georg. I can imagine him telling a Cardinal, "Don't make me cut you, bitch!"

HaHa, R32--The Cock-Blocking Pope. Love it!%0D %0D And does Georg have to placate Ratzi by cooing, "Baby, don't be like that! You know I don't even look at those young priests! Ain't no other ass like yours, girl."

LOL! Fascinating that Pope Paul V dated a film actor. Paul V died in 1621.
Georg Gaenswein isn't a monsignor. He's a bishop.

From Georg Gänswein's Wikipedia page. "In his private life, Gänswein devotes his time to playing tennis, skiing, and flying airplanes." So much for that vow of poverty, sounds more like a jet setter.

Vow of poverty? Why would he be taking a vow of poverty? He's not a monk.

The reference is, of course, to the man who gave the world another billion babies: Paul VI.
As to whom Paul V's bumboys were...

Does he still do everything with the old pope, including 'nap time', but somehow still 'attend to the new pope's daily needs'?
Whoever wrote that article wasn't even trying to hide what they thought.
