After legalization of same-sex 'marriage,' archbishop calls it 'war against God'

.- The Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano (LOR) will publish an article tomorrow in which it asserts that with the approval of homosexual "marriage" by the Argentinean senate, the future of the family in the country is "threatened." The people who suffer most from its passage, said one Argentinean archbishop, are children. With a vote of 33-27 on Wednesday, the senate passed legislation which modifies civil law to read that marriage is between "parties united in marriage," and grant them equal standing with heterosexual couples in adoption programs.

Archbishop of Buenos Aires Jorge Mario Bergoglio was quoted by the Vatican paper as saying that the decision to legalize same-sex "marriage" represents "a war against God."

He and the bishops of Argentina, the article says, have repeated "many times" that same-sex unions "do not possess the biological and anthropological elements that are proper of marriage and of family. In this type of union the conjugal dimension and the openness to the transmission of life are lacking."

The Vatican paper also quoted the words of the Archbishop of San Juan de Cuyo, Alfonso Rogelio Delgado Evers, who said that the work for the dignity of people, families and children must continue. "We need to explain to the citizens that there is a type of aggression and discrimination towards normal people in this action."

Marriage between a man and a woman to produce and take care of life "is not at all comparable to other types of union," he said. "The politicians who approved this law did not take in to account and did not think about protecting the most vulnerable people: children."

LOR reported that protests against the new law are being held by Catholics across Argentina.
