The Importance of Being Earnestly Gay-Unfriendly

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 2-51In a new book compiled by Fr. Leonardo Sapienza, the head of protocol at the Vatican, the close Pope ally features numerous quotes from author Oscar Wilde.

So what's the big deal? Well, Oscar Wilde was GAY, GAY, GAY, and the Vatican is decidedly NOT, NOT, NOT. But nevertheless, Sapienza's "Provocations: Aphorisms for an Anti-conformist Christianity," prominently features the gay icon's observations and musings.

Bizarre.

No word if the Pope will come out to condemn Wilde's inclusion in the same way that he's publicly condemned just about every other gay thing that has ever existed anywhere at anytime. However, this early look at the book's jacket doesn't bode well for a positive papal review:
