Cardinal George and other gay-marriage foes push natural-law argument

When Illinois legislators approved civil unions last year, gay-marriage opponents turned to Scripture and church teachings to explain their resistance. But with state lawmakers poised to consider approval of same-sex marriage, Roman Catholic bishops and other advocates of traditional marriage have changed their tack.

They say church teaching has nothing to do with it; gay marriage simply violates natural law.

Dear Catholic Hierarchy In America:

When something is “against natural law”, that means it is not permitted in reality. The universe will stop you from doing it. As one example, energy (including the energy currently in the form of matter) cannot be created or destroyed. As another example, angular momentum must be conserved. Creating the universe ex nihilo is “against natural law”. Buttsex is not. That’s “against your bigoted and undeserved authority”, not “against natural law”.

Gay couples everywhere will be proving you wrong about consummating their marriages tonight. Some of them live on pay-per-view.

  1. I appreciate the rant and the sentiment but I think you’re confusing Law of Nature with Natural Law.

    Wikipedia: “Classically, natural law refers to the use of reason to analyze human nature—both social and personal—and deduce binding rules of moral behavior.”
