Family cannot be made equal with homosexual unions, bishop warns

Family cannot be made equal with homosexual unions, bishop warns

.-

Bishop Ruben Oscar Frassia of Avellaneda in Argentina expressed dismay this week that many say “the family matters” but then consider gay unions to be equivalent to traditional marriage when that is not the case.

Lamenting that same-sex couples have become more prevalent and that the mentality of many is that these unions and traditional marriage “are the same,” Bishop Frassia responded that “in no way are they the same, because they do not conform to natural law,” which “is not dependent upon the whims of the moment and of life.”

“What do you want me to say? I really don’t understand it, I don’t understand. I can see why but I can’t justify it.  And they want to put it on the same level, they want to make it equal,” the bishop said during a recent radio program.

“We must be very clear,” Bishop Frassia said.  “If we sow wind, we will reap storms.  If we take God out of our families, our society, our laws, our personal things or out of nature itself, let’s not be surprised at the damage that we ourselves might provoke,” the bishop stated.
