Andrew Sullivan, the author who still harbors serious doubts about the veracity of Sarah Palin’s ultimate pregnancy, has determined that outgoing Pope Benedict is gay.
In a post titled “Two Popes, One Secretary,” Sullivan writes that since Benedict will live in the Vatican with Archbishop Georg Gaenswein, his trusted secretary, he must be gay.
“So Benedict’s handsome male companion will continue to live with him, while working for the other Pope during the day,” Sullivan wrote. “Are we supposed to think that’s, well, a normal arrangement?”
In the past, Sullivan, without any proof, concluded that it seemed “pretty obvious” that Pope Benedict “is a gay man.”
Pope Benedict departed the Vatican on Thursday, temporarily leaving the Roman Catholic Church’s leadership vacant.
