New Pope Francis called homosexual ‘marriage’ a ‘machination of the Father of Lies’

He's very Orthodox.

What? Somebody is "very Orthodox" because he opposes gay marriage? There are tons of Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses and Muslims who do that. Are they now "orthodox" Christians because of that? I hardly think so. People, stop acting like Christian orthodoxy is defined by nothing more than opposing abortion and gay marriage. There is a bit more to the faith than that.

BTW, I have no knowledge of anything in regards to Pope Francis and his orthodoxy. For all I know he is spectacular, and I fervently pray he is and will be.

It appears he means that the SSPX sect or perhaps the sedevacantist schism are the Roman orthodox.

‘He despises sacrality, and has de facto prohibited the application of Summorum Pontificum. He is an utter enemy of Tradition, ill-minded, almost maffiosi.”

Summorum Pontificum”... The document specified the circumstances in which priests of the Latin Church may celebrate Mass according to the “Missal promulgated by John XXIII in 1962” (the form known as the Tridentine Mass), and administer most of the sacraments in the form used before the liturgical reforms that followed the Second Vatican Council. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summorum_Pontificum

There are child abusers among them as well but do they get the attention the the CC gets? No, because they’re not in the media’s cross-hairs.

Agree, we don’t know yet how Orthodox he is but taking on the president of Argentine publicly on homosexual marriage and inadvertently calling them followers of the Father of Lies is an indicator.
