Pope Francis is right about abortion, gay marriage ans well as gay adoption. Recent research results from two large, scientific, peer-reviewed studies, summarized by Barber (8), show that 1) adults who were raised in gay households are 12 times more likely to self-identify as gay than adults raised in heterosexual households ...
Why else would gays adopt children except to harvest them for furure generations of deviates.

At the time, Argentina was in the grip of a military dictatorship that carried out a "Dirty War" in which 10,000 to 30,000 Argentines — including a handful of priests — were killed or disappeared. The Catholic Church was widely condemned for supporting the regime, which ruled from 1976 to 1983.

"Even the execution of other men of the cloth did nothing to shake the support [for the dictatorship] of senior clerics, including representatives of the Holy See," Hugh O'Shaughnessy wrote in The Guardian in a column about the Argentine church and the Dirty War.

In fact, an Argentine lawyer in 2005 filed a complaint charging Bergoglio with involvement in the 1976 kidnapping of two liberal Jesuit priests, an episode recounted in the book El Silencio, or "The Silence," by Argentine investigative journalist Horacio Verbitsky.

Let's stay on topic, shall we?
