Fr. Zuhlsdorf has posted this Document from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. It is a must read for us Catholics who are OBLIGED to oppose the legal recognition of homosexual unions! Here is paragraph two that speaks to us bluntly:
I. THE NATURE OF MARRIAGE
AND ITS INALIENABLE CHARACTERISTICS
2. The Church’s teaching on marriage and on the
complementarity of the sexes reiterates a truth that is evident to right
reason and recognized as such by all the major cultures of the world.
Marriage is not just any relationship between human beings. It was
established by the Creator with its own nature, essential properties and
purpose.(3) No ideology can erase from the human spirit the certainty that marriage exists solely between a man and a woman,
who by mutual personal gift, proper and exclusive to themselves, tend
toward the communion of their persons. In this way, they mutually
perfect each other, in order to cooperate with God in the procreation
and upbringing of new human lives.
