There is some evidence that terrorists were planning an attack upon the Vatican. Initial reports indicate that Islamic groups connected to al-Qaeda were ready to send in the suicide bombers against the Vatican in order to shut up the Pope who constantly makes statements about the need for peace in the Middle East. However, our research indicates that not only are Muslim terrorists angry at Pope Francis, but so are a heck of a lot of Catholics who regard his comments about gays and lesbians as insulting to all they hold dear in the Catholic religion. After all, would you want your daughter sitting in church next to some LESBIANS! One suspects there are some priests who do not like all this talk and action about predators upon the young. They believe it is their right to seek out young boys for sex mates. Just read the Bible.
Pope Francis has brought some fresh air into the Catholic Church. OK, Islamic terrorists are angry at him, then again, they hate imams who speak for peace. But, if Pope Francis lives long enough there will be hundreds of priests who would welcome his death. The Vatican curia do not want anyone examining their financial transactions. I have a hunch, threats upon the life of Pope Francis are more threatening from within the Curia than from without!
