Pope Francis Attacks Gay Marriage In The Philippines: ‘Threatens To Disfigure God’s Plan’

Pope Francis Gay Marriage

 

For any of you holding out hope that this was a kinder, gentler papal regime that dream is over as Pope Francis has showed his true anti-gay stripes in the Philippines on Friday.

Speaking before a large audience Francis used the opportunity to bash same-sex marriage after only months earlier took a very relaxed stand on gay marriage,

Via:  The New Civil Rights Movement: 

“The family is threatened by growing efforts on the part of some to redefine the very institution of marriage, by relativism, by the culture of the ephemeral, by a lack of openness to life,” the Pontiff told thousands at a Mass in Manila. “These realities are increasingly under attack from powerful forces, which threaten to disfigure God’s plan for creation.”

The 78-year old Argentinean also referred to the movement in many countries to accept same-sex marriage as an “ideological colonization that we have to be careful about that is trying to destroy the family.”

“Every threat to the family is a threat to society itself,” Francis also told the conservative Catholic nation. “The future of humanity, as Saint John Paul II often said, passes through the family.”

In his closing remarks Francis talked about how he was “very moved after the Mass today when I visited that shelter for children with no parents.”

Children that could possibly have more chance of being with a loving family if gay men and women could adopt in the Philippines and be married.

  1. Yeah ya know the other day re the Charlie Hebdo massacre he said something about punching someone if he insults your mother… And now with the phrase “ideological colonization” he sounds less and less like the revolutionary pope the world needs, and more like the psychopathic Taliban. Jesus weeps, who would have turned the other cheek re Charlie Hebdo and felt so strongly about gay people that he said a whopping ZERO number of things about us. Oh the humanity. Thanks a lot, Francis, you asshole. (What are you gonna do now, punch me?)

What do you think?
