Is Pope Francis Going After the Vatican’s ‘Gay Lobby’?

So, it seems there really are gay priests in the upper echelons of the Vatican hierarchy. At least that’s what Pope Francis reportedly told a group of Latin American prelates in a private audience June 6.

The remarks, which were made off-the-cuff and were not meant for the general public, were first published Tuesday in Spanish on the Chilean website Reflexión y Liberación, sourced to the participants in the audience who allegedly spilled the beans on the pope’s address. The comments were then translated and published in English on Rorate Caeli, a popular blog among the religious set. “In the Curia there are holy people, truly holy people,” Francis reportedly told the Latin American delegation. “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.”
