Twin Cities Catholic leader courts controversy claiming Satan to blame for gay marriage, condoms

(NY Daily News) The Catholic Church’s leader in the Twin Cities is courting controversy again after demonizing condoms, porn and same-sex marriage.

Archbishop John Nienstedt, of Minneapolis-St. Paul, goes as far as to name Satan as their source in a speech gaining attention after it was uploaded to YouTube last week.

“Sodomy, abortion, contraception, pornography, the redefinition of marriage and the denial of objective truth are just some of the forces threatening the stability of our civilization. The source of these machinations is none other than the Father of Lies,” Nienstedt said in an Aug. 2 speech at the Napa Institute Conference, a gathering of Catholic leaders in Napa Valley, Calif.

“Satan knows all too well the value that the family contributes to the fabric of a good, solid society, as well as the future of God’s work on Earth,” he continued. [more]
