Uncivil Unions

Repeat after me: “Natural Law is a good thing.”

George
Pell: The case against gay marriage

May 04, 2004

“THE institution of marriage, the union of a man and a woman, brings immense benefits
to them, their children and society across the generations. It has the support of
most Australians and, I believe, most parliamentarians.”

    This author is doing nothing to support his statements. People who favor allowing gay marriages do not do so because they believe that marriage is an insipid institution that needs to be destroyed. While I agree with his statement that marriage is a good thing, that doesn’t in any way have a bearing on whether we should allow people of the same sex to marry. The only attempt he makes at speaking against it is to say “It would erode traditional marriage[…]” I have not seen anybody support that claim. It is as specious an argument as was “The Iraqis will welcome us as liberators and jump at the chance to have a democracy.”

    When I marry, the quality of my marriage will not in any way be affected by who, other than me, gets married. And neither will anybody elses.

    Also, the principle of Natural Law states that all men are innately free and the role of a just government is to defend that freedom. No heterosexual couple’s freedom is at risk.
