“Why I Oppose Same Sex Marriage”: A “Vivificat” Blog Post

Actually is "homosexual so-called marriage", but you get the drift....

On the Vivificat blog, this beautiful blog post about “Why I oppose same sex marriage”.

It is so pithy, beautiful and charitable (charitable in the right way), that the best thing to do is to reproduce it in its entirety, including the emphases.

There you are:

Why am I strongly opposed to same-sex “marriage”?

Because it is an offense against the institution of marriage? Yes, but not really: that institution has already been demolished by our modern Godless society.

Because it will most likely wind up forcing me, as a citizen of this nation, to in some way participate? Yes, but not really: I am ready and willing to be persecuted for my beliefs.

Because this is a democracy and most Americans oppose same-sex “marriage”? Yes, but not really: I support many things that most Americans oppose and oppose many things that most Americans support.

Because it is a slippery slope that may lead to legalized polygamy, incest, etc.? Yes, but not really: that would be like opposing abortion because it could lead to condom use (Sodomy is the greater evil)

Because it will likely lead to more disease and economic devastation in our nation? Yes, but not really: those are fleabites compared to my real concerns

Rather, I oppose same-sex “marriage” because I love homosexuals. Because I do not want to see just another enticement (which is what this would be: a legal endorsement of that behavior) for them to remain in that wayward lifestyle and for young people to join that lifestyle. It is a lifestyle that tears apart their souls, makes depression rampant, and motivates suicide to an astronomical degree. For the government to bless their unions with same-sex “marriage” is to say “Come and partake of this banquet, for there is nothing wrong with it. Come and appease your passions and give in to your temptations, we will bless your efforts. Come and reap the fruits of your actions, that you may spend eternity with us.” In other words, I oppose same-sex “marriage” because it turns the government into the very mouthpiece of Satan.

Is this “theocratic” of me? In violation of “separation of Church and state”? Label me as you will. My stance here is a stance of love, in obedience to the Almighty through His Church, and it will never change.

As for myself, I don’t give a hoot how many from the glitterati, the elites, Hollywood, government in all three branches give their secular blessing on this so-called same-sex “marriage”. Call me what you wish, I will never set this lie above the Truth.

Congratulations to Teofilo de Jesus and Dan O’Connor, the authors of this beautiful witness of Christian love.

  1. Superb Point.

    I think they’re wrong as a matter of fact about marriage having already been demolished, if they mean wholly demolished and past saving as it were, the name still has some meaning for say weaker catholics(patronizing of me but you know what I mean),or people with some family tradition or some last echoes of a society in which the majority were baptised,”marriage” is still something to build on and from and in , to sanctify as a sacrament, say with converts in the church, even, however imperfectly and protestantly, in wider secular society, so that further erosion of the very word, the connotations, the meaning as a sign in social discourse, the results that legally follow in schools( as is happening here where I write this, secular “law” incudes same sexmarriage), this attack on marriage IS to be resisted and prayed about, in itself , IRRESPECTIVE of any subordinate material and spiritual gains and losses for these unfortunate people .

    But nonetheless, a superb point.

    • Pepe,

      I think they mean “demolished” not from the sacramental point of view, but from the linguistical one.

      Those “loving” pigs and dogs will soon make their demands heard.


  2. This is how a society commits suicide.

    • Agree.
      See New York.

      The fact is, though, that whilst the suicide of the broader society is a moral and ethical one, the suicide of a great number of unrepentant homosexuals is a rather physical, factual reality. Stupid politicians send themselves to hell by at the same time encouraging many to go with them. Brilliant.


  3. IMHO the ‘fight’ for marriage is hopeless. Indeeed marriage has been destroyed for decades now. l suspect gay marriage everywhere (after that polygamy and animal relations) is probably inevitable.

    Mundabor I don’t know about you but when I look around me these days all I see is ruins.

    • Shane,

      I don’t understand your argument, both logically and factually.

      From a logical point of view, what is wrong is wrong and must be fought against. Christianity can never give away a Christian fight without losing one part of its Christian character. If we give up the fight, the next generation of Christians will grow up thinking that hey, it’s normal. This is not Christian.

      From a factual point of view, I am much more optimistic than you are. In countries like Italy the battle against abortion seemed lost just some fifteen years ago, now the moment in approaching when the Church is going to attack this fortress again (nay, not again: for the first time, Paul VI’s behaviour in the Seventies having been extremely cowardly). Or look at the Unites States, where still there has never been a poular vote in favour of perverted parodies of marriages (the count is 38 to zero, I think; astonishing) and, again, abortion is clearly on the defensive now. Or look at the death penalty, once believed gone forever (in the US) and now alive and kicking.

      The only thing we need for the pendulum to swing again is the proper instruction and mobilisation of the Catholic electorate. Nothing that can’t be done in one generation.


  4. Mundabor I agree with you that gay marriage is abominable, but sadly I cannot share your optimism that it can be defeated.

    Most of our bishops are pathetic traitors to the faith. Were they living in the middle-ages they’d have been burned at the stake long ago.

    When bishops and priests start to deny Holy Communion to pro-abortion and pro-gay politicians then I’ll sit up. Sadly I just don’t see it in the near future.

    We need popes to appoint decent bishops. Most of our prelates were appointed in the reign of Paul VI and John Paul II (his appointments later in life were better) and are utterly spineless.

    • Shane,
      I think what you say might begin very soon.
      There can be no liturgical renewal without spiritual renewal, and no spiritual renewal without better bishops and priests.

      The liturgy is, if you ask me, the pivotal point of the entire Church. The demolition started with the demolition of the Liturgy, with the reconstruction of the Liturgy the reconstruction of the rest of the Curch will surely follow.


  5. Incidentally I got this email today:

    A man suffered a serious heart attack while shopping in a store. The clerks called 999 when they saw him collapse to the floor.

    The paramedics rushed the man to the nearest hospital where he had emergency open heart bypass surgery.

    He awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at the Catholic Hospital.

    A nun was seated next to his bed holding a clip board loaded with several forms and a pen. She asked him how he was going to pay for his treatment.

    “Do you have health insurance?” she asked.

    He replied in a raspy voice, “No health insurance.”

    The nun asked, “Do you have money in the bank?”

    He replied, “No money in the bank.”

    “Do you have a relative who could help you with the payments, asked the irritated nun?

    He said, “I only have a spinster sister and she is a nun.”

    The nun became agitated and announced loudly, “Nuns are not spinsters! Nuns are married to God.”

    The patient replied, “Perfect. Send the bill to my brother-in-law.”
