From The Pillar….
Firstly, Fr. Altman is from the Diocese of La Crosse. He got hammered into the ground by his bishop for doing… I’m not quite sure what required that treatment. Msgr. Burrill – late of the USCCB – was doing Grindr stuff (a hookup app) and has resigned his USCCB post. He is from the Diocese of La Crosse. He got hammered into the ground by… no wait… that didn’t happen. The bishop’s letter says, “we doooon’t know aaaanything for suuuuure”.
Back to The Pillar…
Location-based apps pose security risk for Holy See
The use of location-based hookup apps by officials or employees of Church institutions could present serious security problems for the Church, even at the level of the Holy See’s diplomatic and international relations.
The use of such apps within the Vatican City State could be a point of vulnerability in the Holy See’s efforts to defend itself from cyberattacks and other intelligence-gathering exercises in recent years.
Analysis of commercially available signal data obtained by The Pillar, which was legally obtained and whose authenticity The Pillar has confirmed, shows that during a period of 26 weeks in 2018, at least 32 mobile devices emitted serially occurring hookup or dating app data signals from secured areas and buildings of the Vatican ordinarily inaccessible to tourists and pilgrims.
At least 16 mobile devices emitted signals from the hookup app Grindr on at least four days between March to October 2018 [October 18… wasn’t there a Synod? (“walking together”)] within the non-public areas of the Vatican City State, while 16 other devices showed use of other location-based hookup or dating apps, both heterosexual and homosexual, on four or more days in the same time period.
The data set assessed by The Pillar is commercially available and contains location and usage information which users consent to be collected and commercialized as a condition of using the app.
Extensive location-based hookup or dating app usage is evident within the walls of Vatican City, in restricted areas of St. Peter’s Basilica, inside Vatican City government and Holy See’s administration buildings including those used by the Vatican’s diplomatic staff, in residential buildings, and in the Vatican Gardens, both during daytime hours and overnight.
Signals emitted from most of the Vatican’s extraterritorial buildings, which house the offices of several key Curial departments were excluded from analysis because of the proximity of tourists, pilgrims, and the general public to those buildings on a daily basis.
The use of any hookup app within the Vatican City State’s secured areas could pose a security risk for the Holy See. And use of the Grindr app among Vatican residents and officials and within the non-public areas of Vatican City State could present a particular diplomatic security risk for the Holy See in its dealings with China.
CHINA. HOLY SEE. DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS.
Also, certain activities summon demons and permit them to attach to places, things and persons.
I won’t name any names, … like Pachamama or … not I… I won’t mention the “peace tree” when in the Vatican Gardens the imam read the part of the Koran meant to claim territory for Allah.
