Pope Benedict XVI
Ever wonder why the last pope was ushered out of office in a hurry? Recent reports from the Italian daily newspaper La Repubblica suggest that it’s part of the fallout from a sex abuse scandal.
Apparently, there was proof that Pope Benedict XVI was part of the sex scandal. The people who had the evidence were trying to blackmail the church via the pope. To avoid a scandal, the Benedict resigned. He was the first pope to step down in 600 years.
The former pope’s spokesman has neither confirmed nor denied the allegations.
