Wet Dreams of the Pope

wet-dreams-of-the-pope
The story is about a hypocritical Pope to whom a hypocritical mass of humanity were willing to forgive his annoying political gestures in favour of the far right and spiritual oppression, spiritually kicking liberation theologists where it hurts most and beatifying and lionizing the most oppressive kingpins of Catholicism.

It also deals with the political intrigues surrounding the mysterious death of the whistle-blowing and house cleaning John Paul I to be replaced by II, who turned a blind eye to Opus Dei, the Vatican bank scandals and other spiritual hypocrisies and became a champ of the good old boys network.

    I’ve lost count of all the places & spaces I’ve been with Radio Joy – another totally enthralling exploration of words’n'music, wonderful. Did all that happen in an hour?
    And for all you questers, if you liked this, read “Hadrian VII” by Baron Corvo – what would happen if the church really tried to put its beliefs into practise?! Baron C/F Rolfe was as dodgy & dubious guy as you can get but its one of those great one-off’s…
