In a highly advertised trip,
Pope Francis visited on June 20th the tomb of Father Lorenzo Milani (+1967) presenting him as an "example".
Milani was known for his pro-communist stances and his fight for an "equalitarian school-system" for children, which since then has proved to be a failure. The anti-Catholic Italian paper La Repubblica, which is very close to
Pope Francis, called Milani on April 21st a "bohemian artist of a non-concealed homosexuality".
Milani has long been suspected of pedophilia. In November 1959 he wrote to his friend, the journalist Giorgio Pecorini, "[...] if a risk runs for my soul, it is certainly not that I have loved little, but rather that I love too much (that is, to bring them [the children] also to bed!) ... and then, who will ever be able to love the children up to the bone without ending up putting it also into their a**, if not a teacher, who together with them also loves God and fears hell and desires heaven."
