Cardinal Sarah: ‘Deviation’ is the only word for homosexual marriage


Robert Sarah, a Catholic Cardinal has said the only word that can be used to describe homosexual marriage and gender theory is ‘deviation’.

Cardinal Robert Sarah reportedly made the comments in Italy while presenting his new book titled ‘God or Nothing’.

Cardinal Sarah called on all Christians to fight against those he saw as “deviation”.

“Even fools recognize that, between a man and a woman, there is a difference and a complementarity [sic]. Man is nothing without a woman and vice versa,” Cardinal Sarah said.

“This is not my own position, this is the position of the Church, and all Christians, all families, are called to fight against this deviation.”

The comments were published in the Italian publication ‘La Stampa‘.

Cardinal Sarah’s long history of anti-LGBT statements

Cardinal Sarah, who was appointed Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments in 2014 has a history of making anti-gay statements.

Last year the Cardinal said the Catholic Church was locked between terror group ISIS and gender theory. Cadinal Sarah said both were about radicalising people and destroying the family.  The religious leader described both as “demonic”.

In another interview last year the cardinal said gay unions were “retrogressive for culture and civilisation” and argued that they were a threat to all humanity.

In 2012, when United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon delivered a speech calling for African nations to improve the human rights of LGBTIQ people, Cardinal Sarah labeled the speech as “stupid”.

The cardinal is from the African nation of Guinea where homosexuality is illegal and punishable by a jail term.
