EDITORIALISTS IN MACON AND ELSEWHERE CAN'T SPIN THIS FOR THEIR ANTI CATHOLIC SECULARIST AGENDA
This is what Pope Francis wrote in 2010. DISCUSS:
In 2010, then-Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio fought against the introduction of same-sex marriage and adoption rights, saying that it would lead to “a situation whose outcome can seriously harm the family.”
In a letter to a group of Carmelite nuns that was eventually leaked to the press, Bergoglio said that “at stake is the identity and survival of the family: father, mother and children.”
“At stake are the lives of many children who will be discriminated against in advance, and deprived of their human development given by a father and a mother and willed by God,” he wrote. “At stake is the total rejection of God’s law engraved in our hearts.”
He went on to describe gay marriage as a move from “the ‘Father of Lies’ who seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God”.
“Father of Lies” is a term used to refer to the Devil in the Gospel of John.
