In response to claims that a "homosexual activist" is acting as "gatekeeper" to exhibitors at the upcoming World Meeting of Families, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia has said that nothing could be farther from the truth.
"Recently, some confusion has arisen regarding who is responsible for determining eligibility for individuals and groups applying to become exhibitors at the World Meeting of Families Congress in September," the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Director of Communications, Kenneth Gavin said in a statement provided to CNA May 31.
"That confusion was a result of erroneous and ill-informed blog posts," he said, explaining that the archdiocese and the World Meeting of Families (WMOF) are "the only ones who approve or reject all exhibitor applications, and not any vendor."
While the help of a third party management company, Talley Management Group, Inc., has been enlisted for the upcoming event, it is not responsible for reviewing or approving exhibitor requests, as stated in the WMOF exhibitor terms and conditions.
