I'm not entirely sure, since I also read the vita of the reporter that's available on the paper's website. According to them he's accredited to the Holy See. They wouldn't take kindly to him inventing stuff, but on the other hand the biography doesn't have to be true, just because they say so.

Everything else he reported on was widely published in all the world's media. Such as the stories about the Cardinals Müller and Pell.

It's strange. First info about this I found on polish site with memes, but real deal appeared not long ago and there isn't much about it. I too would expect bigger noise but on the other hand church may be not so hot topic for media now, when Trump and his antics are enough.

All in all I wouldn't be surprised if this would be true - church people done some shady shit before and here only drugs seems to be shady, as homosexuality is only issue for bigots. But I wouldn't bet on it being true, given what you write and what I found on reddit.

Maybe in few days something more will be known.

Drugs and gay orgy? This would be big under any circumstances. That's why I tend to not buying it, seeing as there have been similar reports over the last decade that made headlines on a global level. Not even a single big continental paper picking up on something like that, is unheard of.

Times is quite big? If so then you have at least one big continental paper that picked on it.

Not continental. It's only picked up in Italy, but not by the major Italian papers, by one German blog, and in the anglosaxon world, mostly, apart for the Times, hack papers, such as the Sun or the Daily Mail. Obviously in Poland too, but even if I could read Polish I couldn't say anything about the reliability of the media reporting on it.

I took continental for non-American. In Poland some serious newspaper site went with this but what is written there looks like English text translated into Polish. There's also a link within link to 2 articles in Italian that you mentioned.

Vatican Homosexual Orgy
All things considered. This isn't the worst thing to come out of the Vatican.

Sounds like it was all consensual, so this is only like a 3 on the Evilometer*, and that mostly for hypocrisy.

So did it turn out to be real or not? And how come NZ is paying such close attention to the Vatican anyway?

There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide. -Camus
