In May, 2015, Catholic cardinal Raymond Burke stated that people in Ireland are worse than pagans, because they overwhelmingly passed same-sex “marriage.”
People in the Republic of Ireland overwhelmingly voted to approve civil same-sex “marriage” in a referendum, by a margin of 62.1% to 37.9%.
As equality activists hailed the decision, a number of senior Catholics have slammed the country, with the Vatican—not “Pope” Francis—stating that the result is a “defeat for humanity”.
US Cardinal Raymond Burke, who serves as the patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta within the Vatican, slammed the country while speaking to a Catholic group, the Newman Society at Oxford University.
“I mean, this is a defiance of God! It’s just incredible! Pagans may have tolerated homosexual behaviours, they never dared to say this was marriage,” said the cardinal, according to the Tablet.
Burke is one of the most outspoken anti-gay Cardinals within the Catholic Church.
He has previously called for parents to keep their children away from gay relatives, saying: “If homosexual relations are intrinsically disordered, which indeed they are as reason teaches us and also our faith, then what would it mean to grandchildren to have present at a family gathering a family member who is living [in] a disordered relationship with another person?”
Cardinal Burke has also stated that gay people are “intrinsically evil” and insisted: “[Homophobia is] simply announcing the truth, helping people to discriminate right from wrong in terms of their own activities.”
He was demoted from his previous position last year by the homosexual “pope” Francis 1– but Burke continues with his good work of denouncing evildoers.
Now it should be noted, as Father Paul Kramer has observed, that “Bergoglio uttered not so much as a peep to dissuade the baptized pagans of Ireland from voting in favour of Sodomite pervert "marriage". In a report (which I posted), Bergoglio was quoted in favour of "gay rights" -- which makes him also, "worse than pagans". Don't take my word for it -- read it yourself here: http://m.cnnmexico.com/…/a-puerta-cerrada-el-papa-francisco…
“Bergoglio's words: "estoy a favor de los derechos de los homosexuales y en cualquier caso, también apoyo las uniones civiles de los homosexuales, pero creo que Argentina no está lista para el matrimonio legal'”
“ I'm in favour of gay rights and in any case, also support civil unions for homosexuals, but I think Argentina is not ready for legal marriage”—Jorge Bergoglio
