New Pope describes gay marriage 'destructive attack on God's plan'
Washington, Mar 14 : Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a 76-year-old Argentinean, has been chosen as the first Latin American pope, is anti-gay marriage and anti-gay adoption.
Mario Bergoglio, who will lead the world's 1.2 billion Catholics as Pope Francis, described same-sex marriage as the work of the devil and a "destructive attack on God's plan."
He has also said that gay adoption is a form of discrimination against children, the Huffington Post reports.
According to the National Catholic Register, in 2010, Francis championed against a bill for same-sex marriage and gay adoption.
Pope Francis went on to describe gay marriage as a "'move' of the Father of Lies who seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God" and asked for lawmakers to "not act in error," the Post said.
