New Pope: Same Hate Same Anti-Equality

Rome, Italy — Today the Catholic church announced that they have chosen Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argeninia as their new leader. The newly fashioned Pope Francis, seems shares the hateful positions in denouncing equality and lgbt people.

Argentine press reports that he opposes same-sex marriage and has called it "demonic in origin". and that gay and lesbian people are servants of Satan

The new Pope had strongly, but unsuccessfully, opposed legislation introduced in 2010 by the Argentine Government to allow same-sex marriage, calling it a "real and dire anthropological throwback."

In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote: "Let's not be naÔve, 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."

He has also insisted that adoption by homosexuals is a form of discrimination against children. This position received a rebuke from Argentine president Cristina FernŠndez de Kirchner, who said the church's tone was reminiscent of "medieval times and the Inquisition."

Dr. Sharon Groves, director of the HRC Religion and Faith Program made the following statement.

"We congratulate Pope Francis in his new position as leader for the Roman Catholic Church. As Pope, he has enormous power to be a source of spiritual healing for millions around the world. But for him to be the best kind of spiritual leader, he must acknowledge the signs of the times and embrace LGBT people as worthy of dignity and respect. American lay Catholics are fully supportive of equality, even more so than the broader population. The new Pope should follow the virtuous lead of his flock."

"We hope the new Pope understands the time for religious-based bigotry is not only over, but must be denounced. Demonizing LGBT people and their families from this powerful platform not only fails to keep faith with the most charitable principles of Catholic teachings and the Jesuit tradition of caring for the marginalized, but it does real psychological damage to millions of LGBT people around the world."

A recent poll from New York Times/CBS News found that more than six in ten American Catholics support equal marriage, compared to 53 percent of the country as a whole.

"The National Catholic reporter said Pope Francis called adoption by gay and lesbian people a form of discrimination against children. The real discrimination against children is the pedophilia that has run rampant in the Catholic Church with little more than collusion from the Vatican." - Herndon Graddick, GLAAD President —Staff
