Catholic cardinal says gay marriage is the work of the devil
Argentina’s highest-ranking Catholic prelate has warned that the  country’s gay marriage bill is a “machination” of the devil, reports Pink News.
Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio has called on priests in Buenos Aires, where  he is archbishop, to protest against the bill, which is progressing  through Argentina’s parliament.
In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote: “Let’s not  be naive, 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.”
Mexico City passed a law legalised gay marriage recently, but if  Argentina’s bill becomes law, it will be the first country in Latin  America to legalise the practice. The bill also proposes giving gay  couples the right to adopt.
