The Pope used yet another homophobic slur, but here’s the twist

It was only last month that Pope Francis lost a fair amount of good faith by repeating an anti-gay slur with a particularly dark history. And now—despite seeming to sincerely apologize for his slip of the tongue—word broke that once again used the same slur in a meeting.

Obviously it’s not ideal, especially when you consider the word’s context. Both times, the Pope seemed to be referring to the fact that the Vatican is overrun with gayness. Which…I mean nothing we didn’t know, and also not a bad thing. Queer folks aren’t wasting time pointing out that this isn’t new information, and also that the Pope has no business complaining about it. After all, the Pope’s personal dresser, Fillipo Sorcinelli, is himself quite the snacc.

When you hire a man that sexy to make all your clothing, all bets are off. In other words: good luck babe!

Louder for the people in the back!

But all joking aside…you have to wonder why a man this fine is doing this specific job. Does it pay that well?

Now I know what you’re thinking. Is he…you know…a talented designer and fragrance artist? The answer is yes.

Would we love to see some queer fanfic about this man’s Pontifical exploits? Duh.

Ideally this man would use his power for good, but we’re not holding our breath.

In any case, it’s a stunning feat of hypocrisy to go around using anti-gay language when you owe your entire wardrobe to a man this zaddylicious. Get it together, Francis!
