Skip to comments.New Pope Francis called homosexual ‘marriage’ a ‘machination of the Father of Lies’

Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, is known to LifeSiteNews readers as a valiant defender of life and family.
In terms of homosexual marriage, Cardinal Bergoglio fought valiantly to have the law in Argentina continue to protect the traditional family.
In July 2009, he called on the priests of the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires to bring the faithful to an upcoming protest against homosexual "marriage."
"Let's not be naive, we're not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God," wrote Cardinal Bergoglio in a letter sent to the monasteries of Buenos Aires. "We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God."
"The Argentinean people will have to confront, in the coming weeks, a situation whose result could gravely injure the family. We are speaking of a bill regarding marriage between people of the same sex," a bill that calls into question "the identity, and the survival of the family: father, mother, and children."
The latter, warns Bergoglio, might also be threatened by homosexual adoption, which would be a true form of discrimination.

What's NOT good news is that a majority of those who call themselves "Catholic" are all aboard the fake "marriage" wagon.
So far, so good. He is my Pope, and I will honor him.
Sounds like a winner!! So far so good!
It will take the mother of all battles to defeat the father of all lies. Let’s get it on!
Shouldn’t Nazi Pelosi quit the Catholic church in protest?
Pray for America
Can you document that “A majority of those who call themselves “Catholic” are all aboard the fake “marriage” wagon.
If he’ll stand on that premise, good!
force all democrats to respond to this. This FIRST statement of the pope. yikes. heck force all republicans too. weed out the rinos.
mccain who is on record as not caring about marriage and homosexuals should be made to respond. he leads the tired old guard of surrender monkeys.
that means “The Devil’s Scam” for those of you in Rio Linda.
Modernizing on social issues such as feeding the poor, I pray so. (As in using 21st technology to get what needs to be where it needs to be.)
His first instruction was to Baptize the babies of Single Mothers. Beau Geste Il Papa.
Now THAT is a shot across the bow, right out of the launch.
The Catholic Church has a full-time job purging its ranks of the the activists that have infested the ranks of its priesthood, who apparently infiltrated at many levels and from many directions over much of the last half-century or so. And much of this infiltration has taken place right here in the Untied States (spelling intentional). Particularly in the big-city dioceses, some of which are served by the most liberal bishops in the entire hierarchy of the Catholic Church.
Iam not sure of the Social Justice though.
