Pope Francis has admitted that a “gay lobby” exists within the Vatican’s administration and is planning to take action about it, according to reports.
The Pontiff supposedly made the claim during an audience last Thursday at the Vatican with a group of Latin American priests and nuns.
“It is true… they speak of a ‘gay lobby’ and that is true, it is there… we will have to see what we can do.”
“Yes, it is difficult,” he reportedly said. “In the Curia there are holy people, truly holy people. But there is also a current of corruption, also there is, it is true… they speak of a ‘gay lobby’ and that is true, it is there… we will have to see what we can do.”
A Vatican spokesman declined to comment on the statement, which was reported by the Chilean Catholic website, Reflexion y Liberation. “This was a private meeting held by the Pope and I will not comment on private meetings,” said Father Federico Lombardi.
I’ll be the first to admit that there are thousands, millions of decent, loving Catholics out there who live good lives and do good work.
But, frankly, the men you allow to lead your religion are dicks.
