all in the (redefined) family

By Diogenes (articles ) | Aug 06, 2010

How nice that US Catholic would carry an essay encouraging us to expand our understanding of what constitutes a family. And what a coincidence that the essay would appear on the very day that a judge in California instructed us that there is no rational explanation for defining the family as we have for the past several thousand years. 

Always nice to expand your horizons. Always nice to know that US Catholic will deliver an authentic Catholic perspective. 

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Why would US Catholic publish this piece unless they did not believe Christ when He said, "Have you not heard from The Beginning that a Man shall leave his Father and Mother and be joined to his Wife and the two shall become one Flesh..." Only in a complementary relationship can two become one body, one spirit in Love thus creating a new Family, which is the essence of Marriage.

    At this reading there are three comments on this piece in US Catholic. All of the readers of even that publication disagree with the writer's redefinition.
