Associate professor at the University of St. Thomas, Stephen Heaney defends natural marriage and Archbishop John Nienstedt.
If sex did not lead to children, no one would ever have thought up the institution of marriage. It would be a strange, intrusive insinuation of the community into the lives of its citizens. On the other hand, this union of man and woman, and the resulting children, are the cornerstone of every society that has ever existed. …marriage was not invented by religion. It is part of the nature of reality which, for the good of human flourishing, must be protected in law.
To be "forced" to live with this definition [natural marriage] is like being "forced" to live with the laws of physics.
What this alternative view expects, however, is for government to adopt a definition of marriage that contradicts the nature of human beings and our long experience, a new definition that says marriage is whatever the people involved say it is. In other words, the revisionists wish to impose their view on the rest of us... By refusing to adopt this revised definition [same sex marriage], the community is not failing to respect the rights and dignity of those who believe it, any more than it is required to adopt an alternative, flat-earth model for global air and shipping control, in order to respect the opinions of flat-earthers. Indeed, if it did so, the results would be disastrous.
Same sex “marriage” is doomed, because the couples contradict their own bodies. Ultimately same sex marriage advocates battle not just religions, but reality.
Don’t be a flat-earther--support natural marriage.
