OK, this one gets the WTF of the week.
The Vatican has praised the work of bisexual playwright Oscar Wilde, despite previously regarding him as an immoral degenerate. The newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, which is seen as the official mouthpiece of Pope Benedict XVI, described him as “always looking for the beautiful and the good, but also for a God”. The review added: “Wilde was a fortunate man, as more than 100 years after his death his works had not been forgotten and continue to fly off the shelves.” The turn-around has been met with surprise from Italian newspapers and commentators.
Didn’t see that one coming, did you?
