.....and the catholic church does it again. It was the time for them to try and change their image and get out of the dark ages. Instead, it's the same old bullshit and another asshole is put in charge. I seriously question anyone that is a member of that corrupt, fucked up organization.
Bergoglio has affirmed church teaching on homosexuality, maintaining that homosexual actions are immoral.
He opposes same-sex marriage, and unsuccessfully opposed legislation introduced in 2010 to legalize same-sex marriage in Argentina, calling it a "real and dire anthropological throwback". In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote:
"Let's not be na´ve, 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."
In this context, Bergoglio is also opposed to adoption by same-sex couples, arguing that it threatened the "identity [...] and the survival of the family: father, mother and children". He stated that "children [...] are discriminated against in advance depriving them of human growth that God would be given to a father and a mother".
