The gay lobby is a term to describe how a relatively small number of activists for the homosexual agenda seek to acquire influence over larger organizations and political entities.

The term was used, for example, to describe attempts by activists to infiltrate and gain control over the Catholic Church, as initially reported by the Italian media and confirmed by Pope Francis:[1]

In the document, Francis is quoted 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. ...

In the days leading up to Pope Benedict XVI's Feb. 28 resignation, Italian media were rife with reports of a "gay lobby" influencing papal decision-making and Vatican policy through blackmail, and suggestions that the scandal had led in part to Benedict's decision to resign.

Subsequently, in the summer 2013, Pope Francis said at a press conference:[2]

So much is written about the gay lobby. I have yet to find on a Vatican identity card the word 'gay'." They say there are some gay people here. I think that when we encounter a gay person, we must make the distinction between the fact of a person being gay and the fact of a lobby, because lobbies are not good.

The gay lobby has been increasingly influential over the Mormon Church, such that by 2015 pro-homosexual agenda legislation began to pass easily in Utah[3].
