One thought on “Same-Sex “Marriage” Compendium

  1. Father Mark,

    I await Part II with baited breath (I really must stop eating anchovies). In the meantime, I’ll be frantically reading all the “asides” to build up a plaque of background.

    My personal take on “same sex marriage” is that it is an attack on the family as society’s basic unit for procreation. There is only one illuminating light on the rationale for this attack; it’s the deliberate denigration of the union: The light comes from nature, and it’s the march of the lemmings to the sea. Our society has unconsciously reached the point where it sees population control by any means as preferable to “go, be fruitful and multiply.”; and society is embarking on self-destruction.

    As in the past, there is but one way to avoid such behavior. The Essenes had the Dead Sea wherewith to flee; could Rocky Mount, Virginia be the place for you and me?

    If not, then “Hie thee to a nunnery…” [you’ll see; what follows fits the subject exactly].

    In God we trust.
