VIA MEDIAITE: In case you were thinking the new Pope was some sort of moderate or reformer:

  • On same-sex marriage: The new pope has called gay marraige “a scheme to destroy God’s plan” and “a real and dire anthropological throwback.” In 2010, he was a vocal opponent of the Argentinian government’s proposed legislation to legalize same-sex marriage.
  • On homosexuality: Bergoglio is reportedly “unwaveringly orthodox” on such moral issues.
  • On abortion: He has rallied his clergy against the “culture of death” that is the pro-abortion movement.
  • On contraceptives: The new pope strongly opposed Argentinian President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner‘s efforts to distribute free contraceptives, likely seeing it as part of the aforementioned “culture of death.”
  • On same-sex adoption: Bergoglio has called it a form of discrimination against children.
