The Vatican has not yet made a decision regarding the appointment of a new ambassador from France to the Holy See, the respected Roman news agency I Media reports.

Contrary to rumors that have circulated widely in the French and Italian media, the Vatican has not rejected the nomination of Laurent Stefanini, who is described as a “discreet” homosexual, I Media reports. The agency says that a meeting between the would-be French ambassador and Pope Francis was “particularly cordial,” and the two men prayed together.

According to I Media, during the meeting Pope Francis questioned Stefanini about how he would carry out his duties as the French envoy in Rome.

    There is no such thing as a "discrete" homosexual who is that much in the public eye. This is the French President's way of saying tough to the Vatican. They should know better in the first place. The Pope should say try again.
