Overview

Today homosexual activists are demanding the legalization of same-sex “marriage.” In some places they have even achieved this goal.

They assert that this is a matter of equality. If heterosexuals can marry people of the opposite sex, they argue, then equality demands that homosexuals be allowed to marry people of the same sex.

Many have found this argument compelling. Others have no objection to the idea of homosexual marriage. Both of these are grave signs. They reveal just how much damage the institution of marriage has already suffered.

Opponents of homosexual marriage argue that if marriage were redefined to include same-sex couples, then both marriage and families would suffer great damage. That is quite true, but marriage has already been greatly damaged or else the idea that two people of the same sex could marry each other wouldn’t even be under discussion. The fact that it is shows that a large segment of the public does not understand the basics of marriage. They have forgotten—or never knew—what marriage is.

In Catholic Answers booklet Why Homosexual Unions Are Not Marriages you’ll find an abundance of information on the issue that has been pushed to the front lines when it comes to the ongoing “Culture War” we find ourselves in. This handy booklet covers topics including:
• What Marriage Is
• Why Societies Recognize Marriages
• Why Society Shouldn’t Pretend Homosexual Unions Are Marriages
• Why This Is Not a “Religious Issue”
• How Can We Show True Compassion for Those with Same-Sex Attraction?
• And so much more…

There is nothing hateful about... or from God. ALL people are children of God and loved. Actions, however, may be sinful... or not. Love does not mean anything goes (ask any parent or teacher...and/or check out the Word of God). Marriage is a sacrament and must therefore be attuned with God's Word (notice this is a Catholic publication). A civil union is not a sacrament ....so have a civil union. One does not have to agree with the truth, but that does not make it (the truth) hateful. Personally, I don't define people by what they " do in the bedroom" and would rather not know... or label anyone by that criteria. And what is so bad about chastity anyway?

Hate speech.  This book is anti GLBT, why would anyone who believes in equality for all want to read or support  this ?  Sexual orientation can not be changed,  to subject someone to the idea it can is abuse. Why does B&N even allow such anti GLBT hate on this site?
