Same-sex unions corrupt understanding of marriage, says Australian bishop

Catholic World News - November 18, 2010

Legal recognition of same-sex unions would seriously undermine the understanding of marriage, argues Bishop Julian Porteous.

The Sydney, Australia auxiliary writes that acceptance of same-sex unions “will entrench, in a public way, the separation of sexuality from its life-giving aspect and separate the notion of marriage from including the generation of children.” As a result, he says, “It will move marriage from a children-centred institution to an adult-centred one.”
