Patriot Post has an excellent article by Terence Jeffrey about same-sex marriage, the homosexual movement, and Salvatore J. Cordileone’s new assignment: speak the truth in love as new archbishop of San Francisco.
The truth: Traditional family life cannot survive in a culture seeking to force normalization and moral approbation of homosexual behavior.
The reason: Homosexual behavior is wrong. It violates the natural law. To say two men or two women can marry one another is like saying two plus two is five: It is not the way God made things. To tell people, including children, that they must assent to the government claiming that two men or two women can marry one another is like telling them they must assent to the government telling them two plus two is five. Cordileone's record shows him to be man of compassion, conviction and courage.
"In places where marriage's core meaning has been altered through legal action, officials are beginning to target for punishment those believers and churches that refuse to adapt," he said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee last November. "Any nonconforming conduct and even expressions of disagreement, based simply on support for marriage as understood since time immemorial, are wrongly being treated as if they harmed society, and somehow constituted a form of evil equal to racism."
