    Please there is no sexuality in this. This has nothing to do with sexuality! None whatsoever! Don’t even try to imply it. I am sure everyone felt awful watching this.

    BUT I LOVED IT! So handsome, strong men. A male body is so beautiful.

    the troupe is called i fratelli pellegrini-i think they’re really brothers. the acrobatic work was spectacular but i had to turn down the volume because the music was so 80s cheesy that i couldn’t stand it.

    This is just creepy on every level.

    Il Gay Nazi Papa leering at that hot young flesh was particularly disturbing.

    I wonder if he had a private “audience” with them later where he sucked the life essence out of them?

    I know that it wasn’t meant to be sexual, but come on. The music, the creepy stare, the muscly men slowly taking off their shirts, the nuns waving handkerchiefs. Seriously.

    I was more amazed that they allowed the young lady in wearing tight, form-fitting clothing and stiletto heels…and with her head uncovered. Methinks the RCC is getting a little to liberal for its own good. Muscular men, lithe women…The Temptation is upon us!

    It’s lucky the pope was wearing his dress-i’m sure the old creep got a major boner. He is the most disgusting man in the universe–i hate him and everything that horrible church of voodoo stands for.

    Priceless! Surely some pen-pusher in the Russian Church must have questioned the wisdom of this performance?? Wish penile plethysmographs had been attached to all the bishops in the audience.

    They looked as if they had stepped out one of those Falcon International videos- no like anyone in that audience would be familiar with such naughty enterprise.

    So what Cirque de Soleil came to the Pope. The comment about the 12 year olds is beyond the pale!

    @gordon

    you know what’s beyond the pale? is people using that tired old, worn out and overused phrase “beyond the pale.”

    This is so gratuitously gay, I can’t stand it. All those old queens sitting there in their tired frocks watching the shirtless (and shaved) acrobats – for what, exactly?

  12. Pyre says

    I’ve lived beyond the Pale, Gordon, and find the negative implications of your comment offensive. For shame.

  13. BobN says

    Didn’t I see this in a Fellini movie?

    Seriously, it’s a throw-back to the imperial papacy of the Middle Ages.

    But, ignoring how stupid it is to do gymnastics on a marble floor, that was fun to watch.

    With the exception of a man over thirty five at a gay bar, it doesn’t get much easier than this, does it. No.

    So did he have a fist full of singles? ha ha ha…nazi pope motorboating guy’s tush.

    a bevy of beauties performing for the old reprobate — what a joke within a joke. miss papa reminds one the old pedophile on “the family guy.”

  16. marke says

    Stop reading gay into the beauty of the male form. You’re like perverted straight guys at a cheerleader’s convention. No better.

  17. oliver says

    Kids, don’t try this at home!
    (Leave it to the Pope and his buddies to do, in closed quarters.)

  18. lord says

    it’s not gay. don’t put your own fears or secret desires on this. that’s one of the things wrong with the world as it is. could they have worn a shirt? maybe but generally when you see that type of act, be it all male or male female, the guys don’t wear shirts. get over your issues people. if it had been hot chicks this wouldn’t be an issue.

  19. JH says

    From the looks of the wicked eyebrow and chest waxing on those guys I doubt they minded the implications of the situation in any way.

  20. Cd in DC says

    haven’t seen anything that creepy since the vienna boys choir came out in shorts and blew on their flutes. the big one is nice.

    @bucky: you’re hilarious!
    but seriously, this clip was definitely weird and a bit creepy. c’mon, the pope looks like a leering ghoul. and the troupe with their catwoman assistant is at least mildly inappropriate in appearance for a Vatican performance. i say this as a recovering roman catholic.
    the commentary here is positively funny and terrific! cheers!
