The Pope: "Homosexual Marriage Is Contrary to Nature"

There's a reason that the homosex-marriage people frame the argument as one of 'religion.'  It's because 'religion' (and truth) has been relative-ized in what remains of Western culture. 

St. John Paul II saw that, as did Benedict XVI;  JPII therefore argued from truth in his theology of the body; Benedict, on the other hand, argued against 'the culture of relativism.'

Pope Francis argues from nature, as did JPII.

...the Pope has rejected the idea of same-sex marriage as an “anthropological regression” and stressed that  when it comes to adoption, “every person needs a male father and a female mother.”

Pope Francis explained his views on these hot-button issues in his book, On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family, and the Church in the Twenty-First Century, which he co-wrote with Rabbi Abraham Skorka in 2010 and which was republished after the then-Argentine cardinal was elected to the papacy in March 2013.

The book is a dialogue between Skorka and the future Pope and includes a chapter on same-sex marriage, which is where the pontiff also talks about adoption.

Looks like Pope Francis will not again grace the cover of Time Maga-rag, eh?

Skorka first explains that Judaism “prohibits sexual relations between two men” and then expresses worry about how a proposed gay-marriage law in Argentina could change “the core values of our society.”
Pope Francis (then-Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio) says, “I have the exact same opinion; in order to define it I would use the expression ‘anthropologic regression,’ a weakening of the [marriage] institution that is thousands of years old and that was forged according to nature and anthropology.

It's not only Jews and Catholics, of course.  There is NO civilization on the face of the Earth which endorses homosexual "marriage."  (And for those of  you who argue that black-robed lawyers represent 'civilization,' let's remember Dred Scott and Roe.)

In the end, Francis, JPII, and Benedict all argued from "what is", the epistemology of truth.  "What is" also is the essential of nature. It's why rain falls down, not up.

But none are so blind as those who will not see; another Jewish/Catholic maxim which just so happens to be true, and conforms with nature.

The Catholic Church argues from nature only when it suits their purpose. Same sex marriage isn't natural but the rest of their creationist hocus pocus is fact because a book of fables told them so.

The combox is moderated, but I allow some comments because they are so utterly inane as to provide entertainment. Yours fits!!

Your juvenile "I know what you are but what am I" drivel is as stale as your breath. Try using some of your natural logic to refute the comment instead of pooh-poohing it. The petty put-downs are signs of a lazy intellect.

Entertainment with Irony Sauce!!

Here's the main course, entertainment: their creationist hocus pocus is fact because a book of fables

And here's the Irony Sauce:

Try using some of your natural logic to refute the comment instead of pooh-poohing it

But since you implicitly agree that homosex 'marriage' is contrary to nature, we'll consider the discussion closed in agreement.
