    Deacon Keith,

    Thank you for calling the relationship that SSA couples have as a paramour rather than label this pairing with the word marriage. We need to stop recreating the language to mean whatever we imagine it means. Even the Merriam dictionary has started calling this pairing something "like" marriage.

    Marriage is for one man one woman and cannot be defined in any other way. If those who stand for Marriage as God created us, male and female and instituted a Sacrament to join them for life, if we would avoid using this description to explain something that is "like" or "similar" or "imitating" then the real meaning of the word Marriage would still belong to the true relationship and not be sullied by those who try to reinvent a joining that is far from what God intended.

    To call this act a marriage is as silly as calling an embryo something that needs to be fertilized. Marriage is what it is, no less, no more, a sacrament for the good of the man and women and the procreation of children.
