Cardinal: High court wrong to uphold gay marriage
Now, it is no surprise that the Catholic leadership are against gay marriage, and I doubt it is a surprise to anyone here that they are also liars. But this line just jumped out at me:
He called same-sex unions "inherently immoral," saying they "distort the nature of marriage raised by Christ to the dignity of a sacrament."
Whoa, there lil' buddy. Marriage as a sacrament goes back to the Christ you say? Well, the Bible might support that position, but the Church definitely does not.
From the Wiki on Catholic marriage
This negative view of marriage was reflected in the lack of interest shown by the Church authorities. Although the Church quickly produced liturgies to celebrate Baptism and the Eucharist, no special ceremonial was devised to celebrate Christian marriage, nor was it considered important for couples to have their nuptials blessed by a priest. People could marry by mutual agreement in the presence of witnesses. This system, known as Spousals, persisted after the Reformation. At first the old Roman pagan rite was used by Christians, although modified superficially. The first detailed account of a Christian wedding in the West dates from the 9th century and was identical to the old nuptial service of Ancient Rome.
That's the 9th century, not the 1st, Cardinal full-o-crap. At least get your religion straight before inserting into politics. Well, I guess it is a bit late to ask for that, huh?
