Philadelphia archdiocese debunks report of lesbian 'gatekeeper' for World Meeting of Families

June 01, 2015

The Philadelphia archdiocese has moved quickly to counter a report that a lesbian activist will act as a “gatekeeper” for exhibitors at the World Meeting of Families.

The Lepanto Institute—an institution that has sought to expose the influence of pro-abortion and pro-homosexual activists within the Church—revealed that Teresa Matozzo, an employee of the Talley Management Group, is listed on as “show manager” for exhibits in literature provided by the World Meeting of Families. The literature tells prospective exhibitors that the sponsors have the right to approve or reject their applications for inclusion. Matozzo, the Lepanto Institute found, has a record of public activism for homosexual causes, and is a partner in a same-sex union.

However, the Philadelphia archdiocese said that the Talley Management Group, and thus Matozzo, had been engaged solely to provide “logistical support” for the exhibitions. The archdiocese and the organizing committee for the World Meeting of Families “are only ones who approve or reject all exhibitor applications, and not any vendor,” the statement explained.
