Vatican Stands Firm On Catholic Teaching

After two thousand years, the Catholic Church has not changed its teaching on the order and sacramental nature of marriage, and despite public pressure – and one of the most leftist popes in history – nothing is going to change now.

That is the message being sent with the latest confirmation of Church teaching that marriage is a sacred covenant between a man and a woman, and that same-sex unions cannot be blessed by Catholic clergy.

The decree distinguished between the church’s welcoming and blessing of gay people, which it upheld, but not their unions since any such sacramental recognition could be confused with marriage.

The Vatican holds that gays must be treated with dignity and respect, but that gay sex is “intrinsically disordered.” Catholic teaching holds that marriage, a lifelong union between a man and woman, is part of God’s plan and is intended for the sake of creating new life.

Since gay unions are not intended to be part of that plan, they cannot be blessed by the church, the document said.

“The presence in such relationships of positive elements, which are in themselves to be valued and appreciated, cannot justify these relationships and render them legitimate objects of an ecclesial blessing since the positive elements exist within the context of a union not ordered to the Creator’s plan,” the response said.

God “does not and cannot bless sin: He blesses sinful man, so that he may recognize that he is part of his plan of love and allow himself to be changed by him,” it said.

So, in essence, as with so many other proclamations that go against the progressive grain and reaffirm that Church teaching on such matters is timeless, regardless of worldly fashion or temporal fads, and cannot change to satisfy those who do not follow the natural ordering of the world.

Rather curious: Would we say that rapists and murderers should be treated “with dignity and respect”? How about Nazis?
When God rained down fire and sulfur on Sodom, was he treating them “with dignity and respect”?
Maybe the church should reflect God more and the culture less. Maybe it should say that sodomy is a grave evil that destroys individuals and societies.
