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.
