Of course most libs in government are catholic and you are no exeption.<quoted text>
So 2 liberal fishwrap publications that are known to be openly hostile and discredited often is the best you got Marge?
Catholic News Agency reports today its Argentina director, Miquel Woites, told the agency that claims by Sergio Rubin that then Cardinal Bergoglio "proposed that the bishops [of Argentina] ado9pt a moderate position and perhaps leave room for civil unions as a compromise" are in fact "not true, they are totally inaccurate." CNA adds Woites emphasized "It’s wrong to invent something like this out of thin air."
Beyond the rumors, though, the simple fact of the matter is that the Pope will not reverse the Church’s teaching on the matter.
Specifically on the matter of homosexual civil unions, the Church’s teaching is laid out in a 2003 document approved and ordered published by Pope John Paul II and written by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who was is currently Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.
There are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions to be in any way similar or even remotely analogous to God's plan for marriage and family. Marriage is holy, while homosexual acts go against the natural moral law. Homosexual acts “close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved”.
In those situations where homosexual unions have been legally recognized or have been given the legal status and rights belonging to marriage, clear and emphatic opposition is a duty. One must refrain from any kind of formal cooperation in the enactment or application of such gravely unjust laws and, as far as possible, from material cooperation on the level of their application. In this area, everyone can exercise the right to conscientious objection.
The Church teaches that respect for homosexual persons cannot lead in any way to approval of homosexual behaviour or to legal recognition of homosexual unions
In an article published by your own church the poop clearly is paving the way to gay union acceptance. It doesn`t make any difference if you as a lib that you are deny it or not.
