Argentinean bishop calls proposal for homosexual 'marriage' absurd

.- Bishop Jorge Luis Lona of San Luis, Argentina said a proposed law to allow same-sex “marriage” in Argentina “defies both faith and reason.” He also stated that the bill constitutes “a rejection of God and is absurd.”
 
“Today,” the bishop said, “Argentineans are submitted to the continuous bombardment of the absurd.  The media is trying to convince us over and over again that the marital union between a man and a woman is exactly the same as the marital union between two people of the same sex.  Very few countries in the world have been able to legalize this absurdity. Will Argentinean legislators have the gall to join that short list?” he asked.
 
Bishop Lona said supporters are using illegal methods to try to get the bill passed and that the measure does not grant freedom of conscience, despite promises by lawmakers to the contrary.  He slammed those who claim that refusing to support the measure would demonstrate “party disloyalty.”
 
The bishop pointed out that it has been well documented that those lawmakers who oppose the measure have been subjected to pressure—“including threats and extortion, in order to change their votes or not show up.”
 
“If this slight-of-hand works, the supposed law would be a complete mockery of the will of the Argentinean people,” he said.
