Protecting marriage

/ 29 April 2005

I’ve written in here before about the ways in which I believe that the best way to strengthen marriage is to invite same gender couples into the support and sacrament of marriage. Now I learn, from Adán’s blog, that one of the first acts of Benedict the XVI’s papacy has been to push back against the Spanish government’s attempt to give civil rights to such relationships. Am I surprised? No. Am I saddened? Yes, deeply.
