Requiring heterosexuality for marriage is not discriminatory, say bishops







Buenos Aires, Argentina, Nov 7, 2009 / 07:56 pm (CNA).- The executive
committee of the Bishops' Conference of Argentina has called on the National
Parliament to protect authentic marriage based on the union between one man
and one woman.

"To affirm heterosexuality as a requirement for marriage is not to
discriminate, but rather to start from an objective point that is its
presupposition. The contrary would be to ignore its essence, that is, that
which it is," the bishops said.

The heterosexuality of marriage is not a private matter or religious choice,
they stressed, "but a reality that has its roots in the very nature of the
human person, who is male and female."

The bishops recalled that this natural reality precedes positive law, and
for this reason it is the duty of lawmakers to legally protect marriage,
which is the foundation of the family. Both, they said, have been protected
from the very beginnings of humanity by civilized society.

The Argentinian bishops then affirmed that the diversity and reciprocity
between man and woman becomes even "the foundation for a healthy and
necessary sexual education."

"It would not be possible to educate boys or girls about sexuality without a
clear understanding of the sexual meaning or language of the body. These
aspects that refer to sexual diversity and to the beginnings of life were
always taken into consideration as a basis for legislation when defining the
essence and purpose of marriage," the bishops said.

For this reason, the bishops urged that marriage be protected as "a good of
humanity" and that sincere dialogue take place amidst "the difficult task of
legislating on these issues."

Argument by tautology and assuming the conclusion,
motived by prejudice. It's not even original.

And to say that it's not discriminatory to say
that only gay people can't marry the person they
love is a hoot - but it's also a lie.

"I do not pretend to be able to prove that there
is no God. I equally cannot
prove that Satan is a fiction. The Christian god
may exist; so may the gods of
Olympus, or of ancient Egypt, or of Babylon. But
no one of these hypotheses is
more probable than any other: they lie outside the
region of even probable
knowledge, and therefore there is no reason to
consider any of them."

Queer sex is clearly described as a depravity in the bible and a mortal sin.

There is no such thing as a marriage between queers.

Pure Duke bullshit...there is such a thing in four states in this country,

It' simply stating the glaringly obvious.

And to say it is discriminatory is to say that all of humanity has
discriminated against gays for all of recorded history. I wonder how
it feels to be an embittered, downtrodden victim of the whole world,
all the time.

Why the bloody fuck should _they_ care? They're supposedly celibate, which
is a pretty shabby excuse, considering how many altar boys get molested and
the CrapLick Church decides to transfer the offenders to a different diocese
that's not as likely to prosecute. It's just about time to pull the plug on
this two-millennia-old fraud of a "church".

So what you're telling us is that identification as a
Bishop does not preclude being a moron.

This is just a guess, but I bet most people here
already knew that.

Where do the bishops say women are inferior, unless you consider talking on a
cell phone at 5pm on a work day.
