DOUBLESPEAKING FOR JESUS

From LA GAZZETTA DEL MEZZOGIORNO:

The pope's minister for the family said the Church was against discrimination of gays but could not support same-sex marriage and praised protests in France opposing measures to legalize it.

"The Catholic Church is against discrimination," said Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia. "But we are also against same-sex marriage. This is not a religious belief, but the natural order of things. We cannot submit to a sick egalitarianism," he said.

  1. The natural order of things is a specific term which is the moral source of natural law. Natural law may be understood by observing nature and seeing the will of God made manifest. Since nearly all sexual species exhibit homosexual behaviour in a manner consistent to their heterosexual behaviour (thus, species which form lifelong bonds exhibit this in both same and opposite sex couples), one must conclude that homosexuality is based in Natural Law and is, thus, part of the Natural Order, Q.E.D.
