Argentine bishops speak out against same-sex marriage, urge faithful to demonstrate

Catholic World News - July 13, 2010

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires has urged the faithful to participate in a massive rally on July 13 as the nation’s senate discusses the legalization of same-sex marriage.

On Sunday, priests across the nation read at Mass the Argentine bishops’ statement in defense of marriage. “Marriage as a stable relationship between man and woman, who in their diversity complement one another for the transmission and care of life, is a good that does much for the development of persons as well as society,” the bishops noted. “We are not before a private event or religious option, but before a reality that has its root in the very nature of mankind.”
