Did Vatican Gay Lobby "Conservatives" cause Pope Benedict's Resignation?

The American Conservative commentator and sex abuse expert Rod Dreher put it best:

"Cardinal McCarrick: Everyone Knew."

Everyone includes conservatives bishops.

As conservative bishops covered-up for the sex abuse of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, it appears conservatives in the Vatican gay lobby may, also, have caused Pope Benedict XVl's resignation.

It is obvious that Italian journalist Emiliano Fittipaldi, who apparently knows alot about the Vatican gay lobby, has sources in the Vatican who have given him information that was intended to be kept secret.

He is one of two journalists charged in the Vatileaks 2 trial in the Vatican court for obtaining confidential Church papers.

Fittipaldi says the Vatican gay lobby is composed of "conservatives" who consider Pope Francis a "heretic," but who still helped to cause Pope Benedict XVI to resign with the "war of documents" that was Vatileaks:

"The story of the gay lobby has... importance in the Vatileaks and the dismissal of Pope Ratzinger... He destroyed the careers of those who were with them. To stop this group, a group of supporters of Ratzinger began to issue a series of documents, which was called Vatileaks. I can say this shock, this war of [Vatileaks] documents led to the end of Ratzinger."

"... [T]hey [the gay lobby] are often composed of the most conservative men in the Church. It is a paradox, but it is so. Certainly the doctrine [against homosexuality] has not been changed because the conservative homosexual and heterosexual world is in the majority. Francis, from this point of view, is considered a heretic." (Dadeculturaearte.com, "Emiliano Fittipaldi: For Francis paedophilia is a secondary issue," October 20, 2017)

Is it possible that some of the conservatives who were covering-up for McCarrick may have done it for the same reason that the conservatives in the Vatican gay lobby caused the Benedict resignation according to Fittipaldi?

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.
