Pope Calls Same-Sex Marriage a 

'Threat' to the Family




Pope Francis: Families threatened by 
‘ideological colonization’

LGBT rights advocates have criticized Pope Francis over comments he made during his trip to the Philippines that appear to suggest same-sex marriage threatens the family.


The pontiff on Friday said during a rally for families at a Manila mall that “ideological colonization” seeks to “destroy the family.”

“Let’s not lose the freedom of the mission that God gives us, the mission of the family,” said Francis. “And so our people have reached a moment of maturity in their history to say ‘no’ to any political colonization. As family we have to be very, very sagacious, very firm, very strong to say ‘no’ to any intent of ideological colonization towards the family.”
Francis earlier in the day appeared to reiterate this message during a Mass at Manila’s Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

“Proclaim the beauty and truth of the Christian message to a society, which is tempted by confusing presentations of sexuality, marriage and the family,” said the pontiff during his homily. “As you know, these realities are increasingly under attack from powerful forces which threaten to disfigure God’s plan for creation and betray the very values which have inspired and shaped all that is best in your culture.”
