Cardinal Rouco: Homosexual “marriage” is rebellion against man’s biological limits

.- Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela of Madrid said this week that gender ideology and the laws inspired by it, such as those condoning so-called gay marriage, are an expression of “man’s rebellion against his biological limits.”

The cardinal’s comments are included in a new book entitled, “Interviews With Twelve Spanish Bishops,” by Isidro Catela.  Sales from the book will be donated to pastoral work in Kenya.

Cardinal Rouco said the law on homosexual marriage “is a modern version of the desire to be like God the Creator and not his creatures, to not accept his law, which reveals the fundamental goods of man and of society and, therefore, guarantees the dignity, freedom and equality of mankind better than any human construct that is outside it,” he added. 

The cardinal noted that human laws need not coincide to the letter with the moral law, but they must protect fundamental concepts “without which society cannot subsist.”

In his interview with Catela, Cardinal Rouco also referred to other issues such as the lack of vocations, which is a result of the “crisis of the family,” and the possibility of World Youth Day 2010 being held in Madrid.
