Bishop warns homosexual marriage will destroy Spanish society

.- Archbishop Fernando Sebastian of Pamplona and General Secretary of the Bishops Conference of Spain is warning that the possible legalization of homosexual “marriage” and its equivalency in rights with unions between a man and a woman will undermine the basic pillars of the family as well as those of Spanish society.

Archbishop Sebastian called on Spanish society to “defend” itself and to reject “through all legitimate means” the bill which the Government is pushing, which “in no way can be understood or justified as an act of service toward the common good.”

He also warned that Spain would suffer “a true epidemic of homosexuality” if the boundaries between “homo” and “hetero” are socially and politically dissolved and the idea of “the one is as good as the other” is strengthened.

The Archbishop of Pamplona pointed out that although they are equal in rights, men and women are not same, nor are homosexuals and heterosexuals.  To deny this reality could be “a source of psychological problems and painful frustrations.”

In fact, according to Archbishop Sebastian, a person of the masculine or feminine sex “with feelings, sensitivities and tendencies towards someone of the same sex, whether they will it or not, is an ill-configured person, someone psychologically unsettled.” He added that homosexuals, “if they wish, can change their situation with proper direction.”

Lastly, he said it was urgent that parents, teachers, catechists and priests adequately guide the psychological development and maturation process of young people so that they “turn out okay.”  “That is, that they end up with a personality that is fully masculine or fully feminine, in which the biological and the psychological are in harmony.”

“What remains is for us to do everything possible to eliminate this arbitrary and unjust law,” he concluded.
