Some “Catholic” LGBT organizations were seemingly in a race to cast the first disparaging remark against the new Pope. The Equally Blessed coalition seemingly won the day by labeling the Pope “hateful” within hours of Cardinal Bergoglio’s ascendancy to the papacy.
Equally Blessed is an organization which includes participation from DignityUSA, New Ways Ministry, Call To Action, and Fortunate Families. Pro-homosexual organizations all. Their statement which was quoted in many news reports seems to indicate their shock that Pope Francis would be pro-traditional marriage and not in favor of gay adoption:

May he reach his final resting place swiftly!

These groups remind me of two year olds, laying on the floor and kicking their feet because they don't get their own way.
It's so sad really!

It makes me feel better that they are outraged! Viva il Papa!

Nothing new under the sun- there using the same kind of labels at Pope Emeritus Benedict the same day he was elected "Nazi Pope" etc. These Media folks hate the Catholic Church and everything it stands for. I thought they seemed to like him yesterday because he was from Latin America. But Jesus said "If they hate Me, they will also hate you also because they are of this world" In short the Pope is to be opposed they hated St. Peter.

Translation: Hateful = faithful; Harsh = Orthodox.

I find it odd that these groups still care what any of us think about them. It's a sure sign of a lack of confidence in either themselves or their agenda.

THESE GROUPS as you call them C LaSalle..contain some of your friends or family members…as far as a lie..the Homosexuality is more natural than anything when you look at thing biologically. The biggest lie that was ever told is that there is a all supreme being that knows all and can do all..and loves without end..Recreates himself to destroy himself to save his followers from himself..but will condemn you without end if you don't do his bidding…And if homosexuality is so very bad..why isn't eating shrimp or tattoos or having clothes made from too many fibers…No the biggest lie ever told is that there was ever a God at all. The judeo christian muslim religions are pure insantiy!

It's lovely to see that our new Pope is already giving these groups fits.
Ad multos annos, Holy Father!

And if homosexuality is so very bad..why isn't eating shrimp or tattoos or having clothes made from too many fibers.
Let me help you not put your foot in your mouth in the future. In the Old Testament we find 3 kinds of laws: Ceremonial and ritual purity laws, cultural laws designed maintain order or to mark Jews as separate from the pagans around them, and unchanging universal moral laws. Eating shrimp and clothes from too many fibers are examples of the first two. These have been superseded by Christ's New Testament. Laws such as ones against stealing, murdering and yes, homosexual mutual masturbation inappropriately dubbed "sex" are universal moral laws.

Wa, waa, waaaa…
It's tough to accept and live out that "deny thyself" thing. Isn't it?

These people have a wound that will never be healed and they know it.

One of the prophecies at Fatima is that
"the Pope will have much to suffer."This prophecy is being fulfilled!

Headline: "Pope is Catholic"
And the dissidents and other whiners of either side of the line are surprised.
