Natural Law

Briefest (accurate) description, from Roeser's memory bank:

“That is the notion of natural law, gentlemen-knowable to the intellect, higher than the state, higher than a people. ...It is a pagan doctrine postulated by the Greek Aristotle and the pagan Roman Cicero. They believed the same and said the same. Cicero the pagan Roman became the channel which, beginning with Aristotle, churned the flow of natural law from Greeks to early Christians and on from there to Augustine and Aquinas

Useful for discussions with those who think homosexual marriage is merely a matter of positivism.
