Only a Godless person could write this:
That statement is almost trivially easy to prove wrong. After all, would the Bishop forbid a man marrying a woman who had a hysterectomy? Or to a post-menopausal woman? Or a woman marrying a man who lost his genitals in combat? And if you argue that those couples could adopt, well then, you’ve proven my point. We can allow gay couples to adopt too. After all, children raised in such a way are just as likely to be happy and well-adjusted as with heterosexual parents.from my favorite Bad Astronomer!
I think he is wrong in that children in those type of relationships have not been studied enough. And he is wrong about the Bishop also. The Catholic church teaches that the union between a Man and a Woman is a vocation to raise a family. If two same sex people marry its is not a vocation. PEROID.
And a quote from the Catholic Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio: (BAD Astronomer forgot the end of his quote, which is the most important one!)
"It is destructive because we fail to view marriage in the context of a vocation: a calling to participate in the great enterprise of forming the next generation. Marriage is reduced to an empty honor," he wrote. "That there was virtually no public debate on the issue and that the entire matter was concluded in just over 30 minutes late on a Friday evening is disgraceful."
