The Associated Press is reporting on notes from a closed door meeting where Pope Francis is said to have spoken about a "gay lobby," confirming its existence in the Vatican.
The report, as published at the New York Times reads:
The Latin American and Caribbean Confederation of Religious, the regional organization for priests and nuns of religious orders, confirmed Tuesday that its leaders had written a synthesis of the pope’s remarks after their audience with him last Thursday. The group, known by its Spanish acronym CLAR, said it was greatly distressed that the document had been published and apologized to the pope.
The document quotes Francis as saying that while there were many holy people in the Vatican, there was also “a current of corruption.” “The ‘gay lobby’ is mentioned, and it is true, it is there ... We need to see what we can do ...” the synthesis reads.
