.- The president of the Pontifical Council for the Family, Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, said this week the family is a “patrimony of humanity that does not belong to anybody, not even to politicians and lawmakers, who want to invent their own models as if they were the creators.”
The cardinal said the first priority should be “the humanization of the family, as the beginning of our own humanization.”
According to Cardinal Trujillo, “The State cannot suffocate societies with a falsification of democracy,” because “the family is not just an appendix of the State and cannot be treated as an object.”
“Conceiving of the family in another way is a very huge change that has no basis in the culture,” the cardinal added.
Likewise, he warned that the eventual legalization of homosexual unions “has no tomorrow, nor promises nothing to society.”
