Marriage Liberation Movement: Global Defense of Marriage in France, China and Around the World Comments

I am joined with Christians from across the confessional spectrum, faithful Jews, other people of faith and good will in this growing marriage liberation movement. We are the new counter culture of this age. The opponents of marriage and family are the proponents of a system which seeks to impose their new order on the rest of us. We will not back down because our cause is just and true. History has ... Continue Reading

    The fact that you have cleverly avoided any quotations from Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Catechism of the Catholic Church about marriage simply means that your claim as a Catholic is nothing but lip service. Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the Old Testament. No prophet in the Old Testament is reputed to be sinless, but Jesus Christ is sinless and founder of the Catholic Church. Not referencing Jesus Christ and the Catholic means that you are part of the media hype that the world is about to defeat the Catholic Church in the present age.

    I beg to differ. I believe the same-sex partnership movement just got a hit in Croatia and India. I think India was a surprise too. It may have a lot to do with what's happening over there with surrogate mothers and baby farms.
    May God's Will Be Done.
    Let's pray KA.

    God bless

    Brainwashing is being done by governments of the world that mandate same sex marriage as normal. If a government can get whole bodies of people to change coarse on an issue of marriage,so that they will defend something that is unnatural as natural,than any government can manipulate and brainwash the general public on any matter,so that what is wrong becomes a right to be wrong. A country that has no morality has no stable laws to govern it as any law is subject to change. Moral law is common law for all peoples. Moral law defines human rights worldwide. The Catholic Church understands the necessity for common moral law because moral law is Divine law and Divine law is Holy law,that is designed by God to protect all people from sin. Sin destroys law in any shape and form. Sin is lawlessness. Sin also brings on social disease illnesses such as AIDS. Homosexuality and AIDS are linked together as AIDS was a product of homosexual inter coarse and now it is a common social disease as a result of general promiscuity that affects both sexes. "The wage for sin is death" quote Jesus. The culture of death is one without moral conviction. Nazi Germany became a culture of death similar to the one as advocated by governments today,that would deliberately ignore God's Holy moral laws,so that perverse law becomes the new morality,based on sinful law. Abortion,same sex marriage,pornography as "freedom of speech",euthanasia,a tax mandate that unfairly penalizes the public for what they cannot afford,such a health insurance that is no insurance because of un reasonably high deductibles and equally high premiums as if that is affordable health care. On it goes,the public is being persuaded to support a culture of death by supporting governments that approve of a loss of morality as a form of a political correctness that protects immorally imposed laws,as some kind of a new morality,that becomes a false sense of some kind of newly defined human right. This is the same tactic that kept blacks segregated from white races and it is the tactic that made Jews persecuted holocaust victims,it caused genocide of the American Indians,it is the tactic that made slavery acceptable,on it goes as what is acceptable is redefined by immoral politically correct unjust law. Christians are to be the next group to be politically persecuted as they advocate that moral law is the LAW of GOD and that Gods laws are superior to man made models of law that would protect immorality as if it were moral politically correct law. Atheists have a significant affect on lawmakers in a society that advocates a culture of death because God is good and God is! The atheist and the evil man acknowledges his own existence as nice as long as they,themselves,can get whatever it is that they want. The same goes for homosexuals as they are selfish manipulaters by nature. Selfishness is the manipulation of moral law so that a new kind of immoral law will mandate changes that make sin acceptable and even politically correct,a newly to be protected perverse sort of a human right to be and to do and to protect what is evil,sinful,unnatural behavior. Educators in such societies that advocate a culture of death and deception are also persecuted and fired,if they are not governmentally politically correct,deceptively approved curriculum defenders of immorality,as opposed to the moral standards,of a God-fearing and reverent people. To pervert a society is to pervert the young. God is the enemy of immorality so God must be taught of as pure myth. In a culture of death children must be taught to preferably hate and reject God as myth.the Sacred heart of Jesus is the heart of humanity,a humanity,in community,the Church of God,that is in love with God,as in God all are free and virtue is the love and service of one to another so we are our brothers/sisters keepers. Love is to know and to protect the value of all that live as all are as fine flowers in a garden that must be protected from weeds. Bad government,brainwashing,immorality,selfishness,sin,misinformation of a preferred politically correct ignorance,etc.are the weeds in the garden of humanity. Bad government plants weeds in a fine garden to ruin the flowers so the flowers become ugly and the weeds become acceptable and the flowers choked by the weeds become ugly as well. Life has no beauty or even significance in a garden of flowers infiltrated and overwhelmed by weeds. Immorality is weed and sin,ignorance,in a world that rejects God and common Holy moral law.

    Actually, the writer does not understand marriage law. Civil laws do control marriage. And these kind of neanderthal thoughts will be swept away by the majority. It is already happening and there is nothing he can do about it. It is God's will that all people be able to marry. The bible passages quoted in opposition, are being read out of context. God has spoken on this issue and same sex marriage will eventually be the norm world-wide. So keep spewing your un-christian hatred. God understands the error of your ways, even if you do not.

    I would like to add one point to this excellent article. I see Chastity as the issue we must address in this effort. AS a matter of fact I believe that Chastity in our modern world is akin to the difficult saying that the souls in Christ's time turned away from when our Savior gave us the Eucharist.
    We must not walk away from Chastity. We are all called to Chastity. If we are going to convince other sous to live chaste lives through love we must be willing to do the same. Priests must be chaste, single people must be chaste, married people must be chaste both with their spouses and outside the marriage. When God gives us a blessing there is usually a responsibility involved and in the case of the beauty of Sexual relations we must be chaste in each of the vocations we choose. If we are not ready to follow the Lord's way we will have a difficult time convincing others to deny themselves.

    Deacon Keith, I read your post before prayer this morning and in the Office of Readings, in the first reading we heard:
    "Blessed be my people Egypt, and the work of my hands Assyria, and my inheritance, Israel." This made me think of your post. Are those you call cultural revolutionaries, those who favor gay marriage , those in the media, are they God's Blessed people?

    Francis, Bishop of Rome, is calling us all to consider the joy and mercy of the Gospel message in our work of evangelization as missionary disciples. His Exhortation, The Joy of the Gospel, suggests new ways of giving witness. In this post, you are saying many things you have said many times before. Is it possible to change and take a new approach? Is it possible to recognize all that we as church have done to make it hard for others to encounter Christ and experience the joy of that encounter? Is it possible to see the good that is in those who propose gay marriage? Is it possible to discover truth as discovered in the social sciences in our exploration of the social aspects of family?

    This quote from The Joy of the Gospel points to a new approach to evangelization. We all can learn new ways of being and giving witness from this remarkable plan that can help us to "light a fire in the heart of the world".

    "271. It is true that in our dealings with the world, we are told to give reasons for our hope, but not as an enemy who critiques and condemns. We are told quite clearly: “do so with gentleness and reverence” (1 Pet 3:15) and “if possible, so far as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all” (Rom 12:18). We are also told to overcome “evil with good” (Rom 12:21) and to “work for the good of all” (Gal 6:10). Far from trying to appear better than others, we should “in humility count others better” than ourselves (Phil 2:3). The Lord’s apostles themselves enjoyed “favour with all the people” (Acts 2:47; 4:21, 33; 5:13). Clearly Jesus does not want us to be grandees who look down upon others, but men and women of the people. This is not an idea of the Pope, or one pastoral option among others; they are injunctions contained in the word of God which are so clear, direct and convincing that they need no interpretations which might diminish their power to challenge us. Let us live them sine glossa, without commentaries. By so doing we will know the missionary joy of sharing life with God’s faithful people as we strive to light a fire in the heart of the world.

    We would do well to recall Jesus' words about how He will be ashamed before His Father of those who are ashamed of Jesus and His words before men. The Word of God condemns this form of sexual immorality in both the Old and New Testaments. Jesus warned some that "it will be worse on Judgement Day for them than for Sodom and Gomorrah". Thus He was using these cities as extreme examples of living contrary to His laws.Jesus also defined marriage "from the beginning" as one man to one woman. God Almighty destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, a city in which "every man, young and old" was guilty of this immorality. One of the worst signs of today's world being so anti-God is the new "respect" for this form of immorality along with the continued legal killing of baby girls and boys in their mom's womb in many countries. I will continue to speak out against these two evils and stand before God on Judgement Day with that record.

    The push for homosexual "marriage" and adoption of children are the inevitable outcomes of de-listing homosexuality from the catalog of psychological disorders 40 years ago. This, with all the other hetero- and homosexual abuses and distortions that have come out of the "sexual revolution" of the 1960s are simply bearing their poisoned fruit. I pray that the fight for true, life-giving marriage will open the human race to a more encompassing struggle to restore sexual sanity to the world on many levels.
