Opposing same-sex 'marriage' is not a rejection of homosexual people, stresses Argentinean bishop


Bishop Juan Martinez of Posadas in Argentina, reiterated this week that the Church’s opposition to proposals to reform Argentinean law to allow for same-sex “marriage” is not a fundamentalist position that rejects people because of their sexual orientation.

Rather, he underscored, “Properly speaking, marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman.”

In a radio interview, the bishop added, “Of course we wish to help everybody in a spirit of mercy and closeness. But the issue of marriage and adoption by same-sex couples is what we are reflecting on.”

On the feast of Corpus Christi on June 6, Bishop Martinez expressed his concern for proposals to allow same-sex marriage in the country, saying it would have serious consequences on families, marriages, and children, “who deserve to have a mother and a father.”

He called on lawmakers to address these issues with responsibility and commitment, as their decisions would be affecting the present and the future of the country.
