Pope's plea to reject gay marriage: 'At stake here is the identity, and survival of the family'

Here's a June 22, 2010, letter sent by Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, then archbishop of Buenos Aires and now Pope Francis, to the Carmelite Nuns of the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires:

Dear Sisters:

I write these lines to each of you who are in the four monasteries of Buenos Aires. The people of Argentina will face in the coming weeks, a situation whose outcome may seriously injure the family. This is the bill on marriage of same sex.

At stake here is the identity, and survival of the family: father, mother and children. At stake is the lives of so many children who are discriminated against in advance depriving them of human growth that God wanted was given to a father and a mother. At stake is a direct rejection of God's law, also engraved in our hearts.

Hey Fran, Look in a mirror when you use words like confuse and deceive.

If he doesn't know the true meaning of family or love by now, I'm not sure what he has to offer the world.
