Former Swiss Guard member claims prelates made advances
Catholic World News - January 06, 2014
A former member of the Swiss Guard has claimed that he was the target of sexual advances made by a number of Vatican officials.
Speaking under condition of anonymity, the former Guard told a Swiss newspaper, Schweiz am Sonntag, that prelates-- including at least one cardinal-- had approached him. He offered no evidence to support his charges.

This kind of thing makes the Church look bad and will only add to the press' view that Pope Francis is changing the Church's stance on the whole homosexual issue. These accusations need to be resolved and, if found truthful, expel those engaged in this amoral conduct.
