Andrew Sullivan may be best known for his forensic uterine expertise, but that’s no reason he can’t branch out once in a while.

Earlier this month, Sullivan ghoulishly gay-baited late NYC Mayor Ed Koch. Today, he’s setting his sights on outgoing Pope Benedict XVI. You see, when the pope steps down tomorrow, his secretary, Monsignor Georg Gänswein, will reportedly live with him in a monastery within the Vatican. And for Sullivan, that’s indisputable proof of a torrid gay affair:

So Benedict’s handsome male companion will continue to live with him, while working for the other Pope during the day. Are we supposed to think that’s, well, a normal arrangement?

This man – clearly in some kind of love with Ratzinger (and vice-versa) will now be working for the new Pope as secretary in the day and spending the nights with the Pope Emeritus. This is not the Vatican. It’s Melrose Place.

“Melrose Place”? You know Sully’s pleased as punch about that line. And really, what other reason could the outgoing pope possibly have to want his trusted secretary nearby?

Isn’t Sullivan supposed to be a proponent of gay rights? If so, why is he speculating on the pope’s sexuality? His creepy fixation with the pope’s private life is just the latest example of his readiness to brandish homosexuality as a cudgel if it serves his twisted agenda. In this case, he’s targeting the Catholic Church — and it’s truly disgusting.

      GUYS: If I may, don’t feed trolls like Abstraction. So not worth it. He’s mentally and emotionally stunted, just like Andrew Sullivan. Focus on the Pope, a man who is much more worthy of your attention than some troll.

      Just saying.

      He’s definitely vile, but what does his sexual orientation have to do with anything?

      • NRPax

        So I take it you didn’t read the above referenced articles? We have a rabidly liberal heterophobe claiming that the former Pope is having a homosexual relationship with a secretary. What does their sexual orientation have to do with anything?

      • V the K

        For Andrew Sullivan, his sexual orientation has to do with everything. His sexuality dictates his politics, his mannerisms, his lifestyle. His sexuality dictates every position on every issue and every choice he makes in life. And he casts fury at those who do not celebrate the wonderfulness of his sexuality. He has no identity outside that of being a (somewhat deranged), highly emotional, self-righteous homosexual conspiracy theorist.

        Also, an HIV positive man who trolled for unprotected sex on sleazy websites.

        And there are plenty of gay guys out there who don’t make a big frickin’ deal about what they do in their bedrooms.

  • Lady_Clare

    The only other person I knew of who thought the Pope is gay is Mel Gibson’s crazy father, Hutton.

    what I don’t understand is how this guy is able to still call himself a conservative after voting for Kerry and Obama twice and never ever submiting a conservative point of view on anything. he’s one of the most militant leftwing guys out there.

    • operanerd1986

      He must be more valuable as an alleged conservative than as a liberal. This way, liberal talking heads can have him on their shows and say, “See, even conservatives are shocked at what the Republican Party is doing now.”

    According to Yahoo, Andrew Sullivan is a “leading Catholic blogger.”

    • operanerd1986

      He is “Catholic” in the same was as Nancy Pelosi, Kathleen Sebelius, and all of the others who seem to be able to abandon any tenets of their faith that go against modern liberal positions.

      Do you have any point to make, or is this just Useless Trivia Day?

        I think he was showing his incredulity, not that he’s trying to say that Andrew Sullivan is truly a top Catholic blogger.

    Where is this Andrew Sullivan normally found? Could a map be posted on the Internet, as was done on behalf of Sarah Palin’s Democratic fans?

  • el_polacko

    while it’s true that ratzinger’s personal manservant is extremely handsome, that does not necessarily mean that he is gay…he just likes to be close to handsome men.

    • TocksNedlog

      Another minute’s worth of typing that, later in life, you’re gonna regret wasting.

  • el_polacko

    perhaps if ratzinger had not spent his entire career protecting pedophile priests while, simutaneously, encouraging hatred of gay people by calling them “intrinsically evil”, people like sully would not be making inferences about ratzinger’s own sexuality.

    • TocksNedlog

      You’re right. It’s HIS fault that people tell lies about him.

    Why would anyone be surprised at another example of Sullivan being a d-bag? The man must lead the most pathetic twinkly life because all he seems to be concerned with are things like Palin’s childbearing equipment and the 85year old Pope’s aide. Can’t Sully figure out which side gets the better deal? Sorry but he’s a good example of why some people hold gays in contempt.

    • $23629333

      While seeking to find out where Birther Sullivan might be found, I discovered that just recently the “d-bag” was complaining of the problems he had in trying to find a barber in NYC who could properly trim his beard. I must say I was surprised to discover that he finds it necessary to have a beard.

    Andrew Sullivan’s “rise” in the journalistic world was looking under Sarah Palin’s skirt. Now he is trying to score off of His Holiness.

    Sad, little man, like sad, little trolls who badly want the attention.

    Pathetic.

  • Kenster999

    What’s wrong with saying he thinks Benedict is gay. You all seem to think that saying Benedict is gay is an *insult*. It’s not, of course. Nothing wrong with being gay if that’s how you were born. Even the Catholic Church says so.

    Being sexually active, of course, would be hypocritical (in the eyes of the church).

    Sully’s criticism, I believe, is that church policy (and Benedict) is sad, repressive, and hypocritical.

    Everybody in Rome knows the pope is Gay. Hot just Gay but fem. He minces when he walks. He lisps when he talks. He wears make up. He uses a rinse on his hair to whiten it. He has a private label perfume. All of the close friends he has had through his life have been other Gay men. Georg Gaenswein is his Gay life companion.

    I don’t care that he is Gay. I don’t mind he is not celibate. I don’t blame him for not coming out. It is a difficult thing for a man of his generation to do.

    Why does he say such terrible things and advocate such cruel treatment against out Gays?
