Vatican diplomat recalled amid child porn investigation

VATICAN CITY (AP) — A high-ranking priest working in the Vatican’s embassy in Washington has been recalled after U.S. prosecutors asked for him to be charged there and face trial in a child pornography investigation, Vatican and U.S. officials said Friday.

The diplomat was suspected of possessing, but not producing or disseminating, child pornography including images of pre-pubescent children, a U.S. source familiar with the case said. The source was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The Vatican declined to identify the priest, but said he was currently in Vatican City and that Vatican prosecutors had launched their own probe and sought evidence from the U.S.

    Nothing unusual here. The Roman Catholic Deep State has been homosexual for years. Even the New York Times had to admit that over 80% of the children violated by the pedophile priests were boys. And let me assure you it has not gotten any better under the Communist Bergoglio…

        Church muckety mucks, politicians and globalists all seem to like defiling innocent children.

    Maybe he should spend less time ranting about global warming scams, and spend some time getting rid of the homosexual perverts in his church. And yet the bizarre thing is, all the liberal mainline churches want to welcome homosexuals into the churches.

    The Pope of the day bribed the Polish parliament to allow Sobieski and his winged Hussars to ride and descend on Vienna.

    I still bake my mums cookies which are called Hussars kisses.
