MADISON, NJ (October 13, 2011) - St. Paul Inside the Walls: The Catholic Center for Evangelization in Madison, NJ. Is hosting a Forum on Marriage: "Why is gay marriage a question?" November 10, 7pm in Madison, NJ. 

We seek to engage a culture which lives as if God doesn't exist and a engage a culture that has stopped listening to the Church. This forum will include Princeton Professor Robert P. George, Dr. Helen Alvare and Sherif Girgis. They will discuss the teaching of the Church regarding marriage. 'What does the Church teach about Marriage?' 'What are alternative views to traditional Marriage?' 'Why does the Church oppose same sex marriage?'

Fr. James Martin SJ, author and editor of America Magazine, will moderate discussion and raise the view of those who may oppose the teaching of the Catholic Church. The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions. Bishop Serratelli STD, STL, DD, Bishop of Paterson, NJ, will be present.

Who can come? You can!

    To suggest that God created us as objects of sexual desire, heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, transexual, violation of His own Commandment regarding lust and the sin of adultery, is a lie from the start. When I contacted the USCCB about the erroneous document, "Always Our Children" that was written by dissenters in The Catholic Church who make the claim that we have been ordered to live in relationship according to sexual inclination, I was told that they were removing and replacing this document. That was over four years ago. This document remains only because dissenters in The Catholic Church want it to appear as if it is consistent with Catholic Teaching and thus The Word of God. Now I have learned that this is the document The University of Notre Dame is referring to as they create their new organization of support for those with same-sex attraction who want to live according to The Word of God and thus Catholic teaching. It is the duty of Bishop Rhoades and Father Jenkins to remove this document as a reference for this new organization least it appear The Arian Heresy, which denies The Word of God Is The Word of God, becomes recycled at Our Lady's University. Let no one deceive you. We are not heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, transexual, polysexual, in being, we are male and female, called to be Good husbands, wives, fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters...Our call to Holiness is a call to authentic Love.

    The Bible says it Purely" GOD made Male & Female". But for them who do not believe or understand, then reason scientifically. Every evidence of Gay relationship comes out of Enviromental or Circumstantial conditions , & not through any particular gene., for there never was , is or will be .And if any Scientist were say there is one such ,then he speaks a lie. Even if such a gene were to be invented it will not sustain life, in other words it will be dead before it lives, lest Man say it is the will of GOD. From all this the Will of GOD can be clearly understood, for he never willed of man this way. This sort of behaviors are not new, but extracted from the dust bins of Time, in various names, Moreover no gay in truth can claim that it does not 'Prick their Conscience ".Then there is the danger to this , the danger of "counter Productive ", at least in Spiritual terms is "Spiritual enslavement" & the Spirit being the basis of life, that breath of GOD, the consequences of such bondage, would be very, very Heavy.,

    This is good news-The Catholic Church needs to be out there with these issues and let those who oppose come and debate
