Pope Francis

Continuing with its 1000 year old tradition the Vatican has chosen Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina who has openly called same-sex marriage “a destructive pretension against the plan of God.” and has called gay adoption “child abuse.”

Bergoglio, 76, was chosen by the conclave of 115 cardinals as a successor to Benedict XVI.

In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, Bergoglio wrote: ‘Let’s not be naive, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God.

‘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.’

Bergoglio couldn’t prevent Argentina from becoming the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage or stop its president, Cristina Fernandez, from promoting free contraception and artificial insemination. When Bergoglio argued that gay adoptions discriminate against children, Fernandez compared his tone to “medieval times and the Inquisition.”

So there you have him folks.  Anti-gay Inquisition throwback Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the new Pope.  And for his drag name he has chosen Pope Francis.  Soon to be appearing out on the balcony of the world’s biggest closet in Vatican City
