Letter to the Editor
"Catholics For Marriage Equality," a Maine non-profit organization, has staged various demonstrations trying to give the impression that its positions have validity within the Roman Catholic Church.
Why do they use the term "Catholic," when they have no intention of following what the church teaches?
The Catechism of the Catholic Church (2357) states that, "Homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered and contrary to the natural law. Under no circumstances can they be approved."
So regardless of the conditioning process that has insidiously come into play over the years, vocal dissenting attitudes cannot change these truths.
Yet, in spite of the perversity of homosexual behavior, these dissenters still continue to press for same-sex marriage and all its ramifications.
A plank from the Gay Rights Platform in 1972 confirms this. It reads in part: "Repeal of all legislative provisions that restrict the sex or numbers of persons entering into a marriage unit."
It doesn't take an Einstein to realize that this crucial objective totally dismantles traditional marriage. Why would any sane person want this?
On Election Day, society must retain its moral compass. I urge others to join me and vote no on Question 1.
