Exhibit and Sponsor Manager for World Meeting Of Families is LGBT Activist
Pope Francis is set to visit the United States for the first time this September, just prior to the second half of the Synod on the Family meetings, which conclude the following month. According to the World Meeting of Families 2015 website, “The theme of the World Meeting of Families – Philadelphia 2015 is “Love Is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive,” emphasizing the impact of the love and life of families on our society.” For at least one gatekeeper at this event, the definition of “family” includes same-sex couples.
The link on the World Meeting of Families 2015 website for Exhibitors says the following:

According to the exhibitor contract, Talley Management Group is the “show manager,” and the “show manager” not only holds the right to determine the eligibility of exhibitors, but also reserves the right to reject any application.
As indicated above, Teresa Matozzo is the “Exhibits and Sponsorship Manager” for the World Meeting of Families. What this means is that Ms. Matozzo is a gatekeeper for the event. She has the power to “reject any application” or “limit space assigned to any one company.” And one would hope that an individual in such a position would be one who understands, believes and loves the teachings of the Catholic Church as she acts in the capacity of a gatekeeper for a massive Catholic event. Clearly, this is not the case.
Teresa Matozzo is a homosexual activist in a lesbian relationship. The following images and quotes were taken directly from Ms. Matozzo’s facebook page. In this first image, Ms. Matozzo poses with a rainbow flag (the symbol of LGBT “inclusion”), and in the reflection of the glass behind her, a float of men standing around in their underwear can clearly be seen, indicating her presence at a “Gay Pride” parade.
The next image was taken from Ms. Matozzo’s photo album. It’s the red and pink “equal” sign, which is the symbol widely recognized as support for “marriage equality.”
In Ms. Matozzo’s facebook post from June 15, 2010, she annotates the 11th year of her lesbian relationship, expressing her desire to “marry” her lesbian partner.
The following week, Ms. Matozzo posted about the “Gay Pride” events in New York City.
On August 4, 2010, Ms. Matozzo celebrated the overturning of Proposition 8 in favor of same-sex “marriage.”
In October of 2010, Ms. Matozzo celebrated “National Coming Out Day,” a day for self-proclaimed homosexuals to announce their homosexual acts and attraction.
In July of 2013, Matozzo celebrated the 14th anniversary of her lesbian relationship.
The problem here is very clear and quite simple. An individual responsible for vetting exhibitors and sponsors for a marquee Catholic event should know, love and faithfully serve the Catholic Church. Even just having a mere non-Catholic vet sponsors and exhibitors would be problematic for the simple reason that they wouldn’t have a proper understanding of or vested interest in maintaining the integrity of Catholic teaching among the sponsors and exhibitors. But to place an individual whose very lifestyle is the complete antithesis of the most basic tenets of Catholic moral teaching in such a position is to pose a great danger to the integrity of the event. A shepherd may as well make a wolf responsible for guarding the gate of a sheepfold.
Contact the World Meeting of Families 2015 organizers and let them know precisely why this is a problem and ask how and when this problem will be resolved.
