Prelate emphasizes: same-sex marriage is ‘serious injustice’
Catholic World News - May 07, 2013
Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco decried same-sex marriage as a “serious injustice” after Rhode Island became the tenth state to legalize the practice.
“The meaning of marriage cannot be redefined, because its meaning lies in our very nature,” said the prelate, who serves as chairman of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage. “Therefore, regardless of what law is enacted, marriage remains the union of one man and one woman – by the very design of nature, it cannot be otherwise.”
“We cannot claim to have a just society if we do not look out for the most vulnerable among us: children,” he added. “That means preserving in the law the principle that every child deserves a mother and father united in marriage.”
