Through my Eyes: Isn’t marriage a right? (TheTowerlight)
For those of you who haven’t heard yet, 19-year-old Zach Wahls, a student from the University of Iowa who was raised by a same-sex couple, went before the House of Representatives last week to oppose an amendment that would end civil unions in Iowa. He eloquently spoke of how his family wasn’t much different from any other family and how the sexual orientation of his parents did not affect the “content of [his] character.” Wahls’ testimony suggests that homosexual couples can raise a family just as well as heterosexual couples. Why, again, are same-sex-marriages illegal?
The Roman Catholic Church has a very interesting view on the matter of same-sex relationships. The following excerpt was found at catholic.com:
Every human being is called to receive a gift of divine sonship, to become a child of God by grace. However, to receive this gift, we must reject sin, including homosexual behavior … The Catholic Church teaches that such acts are always violations of divine and natural law.
