Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt Claims Satan is Behind Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-09-16 at 8.18.27 PM

Over the past few years, Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt has been one of the more visible adversaries in the fight for LGBT rights and tolerance in Minnesota. He spearheaded a mass mailing of 400,000 anti-gay DVDs in 2010, created a special "marriage prayer" to drum up support for the anti-gay amendment on the state's ballot last November, and even told the mother of a gay son that she must reject him or risk burning in hell.

With such a bigoted view of gays, it comes as no surprise that Nienstedt places homosexuality squarely on the side of Satan. Speaking at the conservative Napa Institute Conference last month, Nienstedt listed off all the evil works of the devil, which in addition to homosexuality include abortion, contraception, and pornography. The Huffington Post reports:

"Today, many evil forces have set their sights on the dissolution of marriage and the debasing of family life," Niendstedt said. "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. 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."

Minnesota Catholic Bishop Nienstedt Asks State's Catholics to Recite Anti-Gay 'Marriage Prayer' at Mass

Nienstedt

Virulent anti-gay Twin Cities Archbishop John Nienstedt, the guy who spearheaded a mass mailing last year of 400,000 anti-gay DVDs, has created a special "marriage prayer" which he is asking the state's Catholics to recite during Mass in an effort to create support for the anti-gay amendment on Minnesota's ballot in November 2012.

NienstedtHere is Nienstedt's prayer:

Heavenly Father,

Through the powerful intercession of the Holy Family, grant to this local Church the many graces we need to foster, strengthen, and support faith-filled, holy marriages and holy families.

May the vocation of married life, a true calling to share in your own divine and creative life, be recognized by all believers as a source of blessing and joy, and a revelation of your own divine goodness.

Grant to us all the gift of courage to proclaim and defend your plan for marriage, which is the union of one man and one woman in a lifelong, exclusive relationship of loving trust, compassion, and generosity, open to the conception of children.

We make our prayer through Jesus Christ, who is Lord forever and ever. Amen.

Earlier this year, Nienstedt instructed every priest in the state to push for passage of the amendment. This appears to be another component of his evil plot.
