Archbishop of San Fran: Allowing gays to marry ‘is like legalising male breastfeeding’
According to the Catholic Archbishop of San Francisco ,Salvatore Cordileone, legalising same-sex marriage is like legalising “male breastfeeding”.
Archbishop Cordileone told The Catholic Herald: “Truth is clear. Wanting children to be connected to a mother and father discriminates against no one. Every child has a father and a mother, and either you support the only institution that connects a child with their father and mother or you don’t.
“Adoption, by a mother and father, mirrors the natural union of a mother and father and provides a balanced, happy alternative for when a child may not be reared by their biological parents.”
The archbishop went on to say, “if you use theology, you will play into their hands and they will say you use religion to control people. Marriage isn’t primarily in theology; marriage is in nature. Theology builds on the natural institution, giving us a deeper mystical and supernatural sense of its meaning.”
