Vatican Rejects Bulgarian Ambassador Due To Prior Book Depicting Gay Sex

The Vatican has taken the extraordinary measure of rejecting Bulgaria’s ambassador due to a prior book in which he depicted gay sex. Kiril Marichkov is a 39-year-old lawyer with two degrees, married to an Italian woman, and speaks five languages. He is also the grandson and namesake of the man appointed Bulgaria’s first ambassador to the Vatican after the collapse of communism in 1990. However, none of that matters to the Vatican which is upset with some of the scenes in his successful novel, Clandestination.

The Vatican has refused to accept Marichkov’s credentials as ambassador. Archbishop Janusz Bolonek, Pope Benedict’s representative in Sofia, reportedly sent a copy to his superiors to alert them of its content. The book tells the story of illegal immigrants who flee to Rome from eastern Europe after the collapse of the Berlin Wall. It includes scenes where the main character prostitutes himself for 50 euros with a man he picks up on a Rome street.

Marichkov dedicated the book to his wife, children and God. The Vatican appears to disagree with one of those dedications.

Such books do not condone the crimes or acts of characters. They merely explore the social and economic realities for millions of people in the underclass. While Vatican officials note that ambassadors should be suitable “bridges” between nations, I would have hoped that guaranteeing free speech is one bridge that exists between the Vatican and Bulgaria. The novel details an all-too-familiar story of immigrants forced into prostitution by their dire economic conditions. It explores this reality on a personal level of the main character. To punish artists and writers for such expression is not building but burning a bridge to the West.

  1. Mespo: “Professional jealousy.”
    ***

    I had not read that there was pedo-sex in the book also. 🙂

    Why are there not sanctions against the Vatican State?

  2. If I read one more thing about the Pope, Vatican or the Catholic Church I am going to SCREAM. Actually, I’ve warmed up to the American nuns currently on tour and defying the misogynists’ orders.

  3. This is hilarious stuff. The Vatican is lost in its own space and that space is getting smaller and smaller. Mike S. had it right when he reminded us that the RCC is a prime partner in the war on women.

  4. Animals wild,and domestic are guileless sinless innocent creatures. Those creatures have whatever sex that suits there fancy cross species sex to sex sax pairings. It is a mish mash of sex of all combinations, and yet we have life with opposite matings occurring. Vatican needs to relax about sex. Vatican needs to stop waring against sex. The beast of the field are looked down on by religious people. The gay is looked down on too. Upon thinking you will find others treated the same way too. The vatican therefore is anti nature, anti neighbor, anti Christ , Anti love, anti life.

  5. ItchinBayDog, The US does have Vatican Ambassadors which is considered a plum job, usually given to Catholic operatives of the prez. I think Obama has an Hispanic gent in there currently.

  6. Animals wild,and domestic are guileless sinless innocent creatures. That is why they are looked down on by religious people.That is why the gay is looked down on too. Upon thinking you will find others treated the same way. The vatican therefore is anti nature, anti neighbor, anti Christ , Anti love, anti life.

    “another low blow by the Vatican….”

    Stop it now, AY. I really mean it this time. 😀

    Professional jealousy.

  9. Does the United States have an Amassador to the Vatican? If so, recall him/her for good. It is a waste of money. An Ambassador has a job of communicating. If the other side is deaf, dumb, paralysed, blind, indoctrinated, pedophile, woman hating, genocidal, and drunk on red wine then sending an Ambassador is a waste of time. Better to flush the toilet when the plane leaves the Rome Airport and passes over the Vatican.

  10. All ambassadors should be recalled from the Vatican. Produce Bernard Law for trial.

  11. The Pope was formerly the head of what used to be called “The Inquisition”. It would seem that the retrograde forces in the RCC have taken over and are intent to blot out the advances of Vatican II. We can again see the Churches war on sex and women that characterized its operations until Vatican II.

  12. While I’m sure it could be said of other countries the only “bridges” the Vatican are interested in are ones allowing them to further their own agenda of bigotry and hate.

  13. Wasn’t Eugene Luther Gore Vidal given the same heat for somewhat of the same subject……

    I suppose the motto is…. What we do is not the same as publishing…..
