Quote: Cardinal Pietro Parolin on Ireland Legalizing Same Sex Marriage

“After they are done going after individuals, the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church is hate speech and there’s a real and present danger,”   2016 Presidential Candidate Marco Rubio to CBN News on May 27, 2015
