Of papal memoirs and gay lobbies

Commenting on Philip Pullella's report from the Vatican, "In memoirs, ex Pope Benedict says Vatican 'gay lobby' tried to wield power: report" (Reuters: Breaking News, July 1, 2016), our underground correspondent, Guy Noir - Private Eye, declares:
So much for remaining hidden. For some reason, I have little more interest in reading this than I do Hillary's "Living History." Popes should not write memoirs, any more, I increasingly think, than they ought to be granting serial interviews. In a crass conflating of categories, it "cheapens the brand." Weren't Ganswein's observations enough already? Our leaders might actually all serve us best by a season of silence.
Food for thought.
