Pope Francis On Same-Sex Marriage (Liberals Can Click Away Now).

From Pope Francis, then Cardinal Archbishop Bergoglio, letter to the Carmelitans concerning the Argentinian so-called “same sex marriage” legislation: 

The identity of the family, and its survival, are in jeopardy here: father, mother, and children. The life of so many children who will be discriminated beforehand due to the lack of human maturity that God willed them to have with a father and a mother is in jeopardy. A clear rejection of the law of God, engraved in our hearts, is in jeopardy.
I recall words of Saint Thérèse when she speaks of the infirmity of her childhood. She says that the envy of the Devil tried to extort her family after her older sister joined the Carmel. Here, the envy of the Devil, through which sin entered the world, is also present, and deceitfully intends to destroy the image of God: man and woman, who receive the mandate to grow, multiply, and conquer the earth. Let us not be naive: it is not a simple political struggle; it is an intention [which is] destructive of the plan of God. It is not a mere legislative project (this is a mere instrument), but rather a “move” of the father of lies who wishes to confuse and deceive the children of God.
One seldom reads the like from a contemporary Archbishop.
Again, if you read here and follow the link you will read words you would believe belonging to a different time.
Let us make no mistake here, and let us not lull ourselves in dangerous illusions: much of this Pope promises to be bad or very bad for us friends of traditional Catholicism. But this seems to be one who doesn’t talk through the flowers, and can get a thing or two very right.
He has asked us to pray God that He (God) may bless him (Francis).
Fair enough, say I. He is the Pope.
