The Dish‘s Andrew Sullivan seems to think so. When news broke that Pope Benedict had no plans to go into a hidden retirement but will instead continue living at the Vatican with THIS silver fox, Archbishop Georg Gaenswein (nicknamed Gorgeous Georg by the Italian media), Sullivan speculated that something truly weird was going on. “So Benedict’s handsome male companion will continue to live with him, while working for the other Pope during the day.” he writes, “Are we supposed to think that’s, well, a normal arrangement?” Gaenswein’s proposed living arrangement is just more proof for Sullivan that the pope is closeted. “This man – clearly in some kind of love with Ratzinger (and vice-versa) will now be working for the new Pope as secretary in the day and spending the nights with the Pope Emeritus,” Sullivan wrote this week. “This is not the Vatican. It’s Melrose Place.” In other recent columns, Sullivan concluded that it “seems pretty obvious” that “the current Pope is a gay man,” albeit one who has not “explored his sexuality, or has violated his own strictures on the matter.” (via HuffPo) (And the translation of that Vanity Fair headline? “Father Georg: It’s Not a Sin to be Beautiful”)
