That's not marriage
Last month, an entire nation was forced to accept a position that man in said nation did not want. That marriage was not in fact between a man and a woman. Even more disappointing, is that a Catholic was responsible for the final ruling. We were told that because of the Supreme Court rulings on contraceptives, that we knew marriage was not about the lifelong union of a man and a woman. People cry equality, but whose equality? We won't be free to speak our minds anymore. Next month, I will be attending the University of South Carolina-Aiken, a very good public university at least by academic standards. But they're already given in to the culture. When I was at Aiken Technical College, a woman in a hallway shoved a box of condoms in my hand, which I promptly threw away. I guess she didn't notice that cross around my neck. I have a friend who is married and the same thing happened to him. He said something along the lines of "what would my wife think"? His line of thinking is more or less closer to what marriage should be viewed as. Marriage is not a contract, as we so often say in legal terms, it is a covenant, and this covenant is not just between the couple, but between the couple and God. This type of relationship is impossible in homosexual unions. I have heard people say many times that "Jesus never said that marriage is between one man and one woman". He said exactly that. Read Mark 10:1-12. Save marriage. Stop calling yourself "moderate" or "progressive", you're not moderate when you directly contradict Church teaching, and you're not "progressive" when you think that sex is only about animal instinct. Jesus loves you, live for him.
