Fearsome…

“Gay godfathers are scared of coming out in the Italian Mafia for fear of being ridiculed or murdered, an anti-Mob prosecutor said. Antonio Ingroia, who has helped bring several bosses to justice, said: ‘Being gay is still a taboo for Italian society in general, let alone the Mafia, which is an archaic organization. ‘These bosses have to cover their homosexuality; they’re afraid because they risk being ridiculed and killed.'” [Telegraph]
