Dear Zambia,

The book by French journalist Frédéric Martel, entitled
“In the Closet of the Vatican: Power, Homosexuality, Hypocrisy”


Amazon.com Product description

A startling account of corruption and hypocrisy at the heart of the Vatican.

In the Closet of the Vatican exposes the rot at the heart of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church today. This brilliant piece of investigative writing is based on four years' authoritative research, including extensive interviews with those in power.

The celibacy of priests, the condemnation of the use of contraceptives, countless cases of sexual abuse, the resignation of Benedict XVI, misogyny among the clergy, the dramatic fall in Europe of the number of vocations to the priesthood, the plotting against Pope Francis, all these issues are clouded in mystery and secrecy.

In the Closet of the Vatican is a book that reveals these secrets and penetrates this enigma. It derives from a system founded on a clerical culture of secrecy which starts in junior seminaries and continues right up to the Vatican itself. It is based on the double lives of priests and on extreme homophobia. The resulting schizophrenia in the Church is hard to fathom. But the more a prelate is homophobic, the more likely it is that he is himself gay.

"Behind rigidity there is always something hidden, in many cases a double life." These are the words of Pope Francis himself and with them, the Pope has unlocked the Closet.

No one can claim to really understand the Catholic Church today until they have read this book. It reveals a truth that is extraordinary and disturbing.

In the undertone of the premise of this book there is a sinister but flawed argument.

In order to propagate homophobia most religious demagoguery try to equate homosexuality to pedophila.

Homosexuality is a sexual orientation in which two consenting adults of the same gender are attracted to one another.

Pedophilia a psychological disorder that causes adults to prey upon and sexually abuse children.

The Vatican and the church in general may be full of pedophiles. These sick people are not gay.
