Archbishop Chaput: Maybe not the first to realize, but one of the few to say so.



Legitimizing homosexual behavior.
.
'Laws permitting same-sex civil unions are directly aimed at legitimizing homosexual behavior, not advancing human rights, wrote Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Denver this week.  “The civil unions debate is not about ensuring the basic rights of homosexual persons,” the archbishop wrote in his latest column for the Denver Catholic Register. “The civil unions debate is finally about securing legitimacy for social arrangements and personal behaviors that most societies and religious traditions have found problematic from long experience.”' - Source

I knew that.

  1. Not merely legitimising, but popularising and making normal.

  2. i think those that advocate for civil unions and gay marriage equate the legitimization of same-sex sexual behavior with advancing human rights. they see it as one & the same thing.

  3. Archbishop Chaput is so brave. If only our Bishops had been of the same courage lo these past forty years. Sad to say, but when they repealed DADT, it was the beginning of the end. It would take a massive miracle to reverse the inexorable end toward which the city of man now marches: homosexual marriage for all. I know, me of little faith...

  4. In my opinion God is love. The Cardinal's comments don't seem to be.
