Celibate Goon Gives Lessons In Love!
In much the same way that abortion and safe sex are promoted to protect one from the inevitable consequences of sexual activity, seen now as merely a recreational activity without any moral significance, the advocacy of same sex marriage renders the idea of all marriages meaningless.How does this work? My man-love and I hook up, move in together, and then seek out the same legal protections other longterm couples enjoy and this affects other marriages how again?
Enacting same sex marriage does not expand the institution of marriage to a once excluded class, rather it reduces marriage to being just about the emotional gratification of two — and why just two? — persons. Such a redefinition defies the true nature of marriage as a comprehensive "two-in-one-flesh" union capable of uniting children with their mothers and fathers.Gratification? Guilty as charged! I'm all for gratification. Please explain how this is a bad thing?
Marriage equality today is the poster child of those who hold for a radical autonomy that believes that anyone can essentially create his or her reality by one's individual will without reference to the truth of things. An individual who would believe that he could, by the force of his will, defy gravity is setting himself up for a disastrous fall.Ya, that still doesn't make any sense. Gravity is one thing, your religious beliefs are another. Unless what you're saying is that there are only one set of acceptable religious beliefs and thereby advocating theocracy.
To impose same-sex marriage would open up a Pandora's box of unintended consequences that bode ill for the advancement of the common good and human flourishing in all of society.Sorry Archbishop Wenski, but that still stinks of stupid. No one is imposing a marriage on you. The way it works is someone has to propose and someone has to accept.
Let me give you some insights into what I think opens a Pandora's Box; sexual repression. Sexuality has to have healthy outlets or it finds unhealthy outlets. You may not like the way I experience intimacy but I do experience intimacy; in a way that is tender, lasting, and gratifying. You may call me unnatural but I would submit that you are the unnatural one. It is you who (at least) poses as someone who has rejected all sexual contact, forever. God loves blue balls!
I hate to break it to you Archy but sex is the good stuff, one of the best things about being alive. But maybe you already know that. For although priests take vows of abstinence, our recent history is full of broken vows. Sometimes those vows are broken with consenting adults. But too many times we have seen that repressed sexuality bubble over as child sex abuse – child sex abuse that YOUR church is still hiding to this day.
So Archy, how dare you come around and call my beautiful, tender, loving marriage a threat to society while you sit there in a gaggle of paedophile-protecting, sexually screwed up 12th Century mystics?
You are every bit as harmful to society as you claim me to be and worse.
