The St. Gallen Mafia’s “LGBT” Youth Synod

The “mafia” in question being the cabal of cardinals who met at St. Gallen, Switzerland before the election of Benedict. It’s a term one of them used jokingly for themselves.

They are described as having engineered the election of Francis, with a goal of remaking the church, in which they were thwarted by Benedict but are being helped by Francis.

They include . . .
