They used the same arguments not that long ago when interracial marriages were legalized. Funny how the scary threatened consequences turned out to be just hot air!

I am sure he misread the report it meant "Catholics priest open doors to incest, pedophillia and rape".

They are always the same arguments. The only change is the topic.

<SARC> And of course they were right. We have all witnessed the total breakdown of society when interracial marriage was legalized. And when racial discrimination was outlawed. And especially when women were given the vote!

Next thing you know, those uppity women will be demanding to hold offices in the dear "mother" church. And THAT will really be the death knell of civilization. </SARC>

I am curious as to why words of officials of this ultra-misogynistic organization are given ANY play. How can any rational person believe anything that issues from their mouths? Do people really believe that they have some sort of inside line to some deity? For that matter, why are there any women who belong to this organization? Self-loathing? Complete and utter lack of self-respect? I don't get it.

The usual disaster sceneria. If you do A, B could happen or will happen (though there's no proof). It is the weakest form of argument.

If you allow marriage equality, horses might turn into chickens. Uh-huh. But they probably won't. Just like all the baseless and false analogies these idiots put forth.

The only thing one can say for certain is: If you allow marriage equality, two people who love each other will be able to get married.

The Cardinal is guilty of calumny and detraction.
