Was There A Secret “Conspiracy” for 110 Bishops Against Francis?

110 bishops from 42 countries gathered at the five-star Penha Longa Hotel in Sintra near Lisbon, Portugal, on January 22-25.

A conspiratorial SeteMargens.com (January 28) writes that the meeting was convened by “critics of the Pope.” The organizer was the Grand Rapids Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, a free market think tank, founded by Father Robert Sirico ,

According to SeteMargens.com, three cardinals participated: Berhaneyesus Souraphiel (Addis Ababa), Robles Ortega (Guadalajara), and a third unidentified cardinal.

The meeting seemingly discussed demographic imballances and the decreasing number of children worldwide.

The bishops hailed mainly from Latin America, Africa and Asia, to a lesser extent from Europe and North America. Although they were invited, no Portuguese bishop participated.

A similar meeting already took place last year.

The anti-Catholic ReligionDigital.org (January 28) promoted conspiracy theories claiming that [by promoting the family] the bishops were “conspiring against Francis' papacy.”

How long have these meetings been taking place?
The story of a 110 bishops meeting needs to be verified.
As matters stand most ,if not all , Portuguese bishops support the antipope.

110 bishops?
How authentic is this story?
I would have thought it difficult to keep any gathering of 110 catholic bishops a secret.
