Catholic and Evangelical leaders: Same-sex ‘marriage’ more harmful than divorce and cohabitation

Posted by Joseph on 12 March, 2015

March 10, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Redefining marriage to include same-sex couples will damage the institution far more than divorce and cohabitation already have, a joint statement signed by several dozen Catholic and evangelical Christian leaders argues.

They warn that since same-sex “marriage” was created by the state, “where the family is a creation of the state, children become, in important legal respects, the property of the state.”

The statement, authored by the group Evangelicals and Catholics Together and contained in the March issue of First Things magazine, calls same-sex unions a “parody of marriage” and warns that divorcing marriage from its original purpose of uniting a man and woman for the purpose of creating new life will have devastating consequences for society at large – and children especially.
