.- After celebrating Mass on the campus of San Joaquin Catholic University last week, the Archbishop of Santiago, Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz, addressed the recent legalization of same-sex âmarriageâ in Argentina.
Speaking to reporters, the cardinal said, âMaybe two people, two men or two women want to live together and share their lives, but to call that 'marriage' is an aberration which some countries are falling into. It is sad that Argentina has fallen into that,â he added.
âHistory is repeating itself. That is, something new comes along and becomes the fad that everyone applauds. After a while, after a few years, people see that it was a mistake,â the cardinal continued.
Speaking about the possibility of Chile passing a law legalizing gay 'marriage,' Cardinal Errazuriz responded: âWith the low birth rate in our own country, there is going to be a drop in the population, and an aging of the population. We wonât be able to pay the pensions of the elderly because we have taken the wrong road,â he concluded.
