Gay Prostitute Scandal Latest In Vatican Shockers
March 5, 2010
The scandal began when a Gentleman of His Holiness – Angelo Balducci – was caught on tape from a wiretapped call speaking to another man, a Choirister – Thomas Chinedu Ehiem – speaking about men for hire to have sex with.
Balducci was under investigation for corruption involving public contracts and projects he was thought to have steered for his own gain.
During this investigation the wiretap was placed, and the negotiations for homosexual prostitutes was heard.
The allegations as they now stand paint a picture of Balducci as a man who frequently made these connections for others in the church.
The case has caused widespread embarrassment for the Catholic church, and the Vatican in particular, and opens yet more questions about the actions of clergy members behind closed doors.
