While perusing ProtectthePope.com this morning, our eyes gleaned over the following headline by Deacon Nick: Tony Blair’s approval of same-sex marriage is inconsistent with Catholic Faith –Archbishop Fisichella.
The website’s motto states: “Protect the Catholic Church through Prayer, Truth and the Law.”
Blair’s assumption that same-sex marriage is a human right and not a straight privilege has the Catholic faith up in arms – all the way up the ladder in succession to the Pope. In the story published March 13, 2012, Archbishop Fisichella appeared to strongly disapprove of Blair’s anti-Catholic stance on homosexuality and cites that Blair still acts “like an Anglican.”
Deacon Nick wrote:
He obviously doesn’t have a Catholic understanding of the importance of fidelity to the doctrine of the Church nor the requirement of obedience to the magisterium of the Church, expressed by the successor to St Peter. That Tony Blair still behaves like an Anglican raises doubts about his conversion.
In The Seattle Lesbian’s story on March 9, 2012 (Pope Benedict XVI Warns US Bishops Against the Sin of Same-Sex Marriage), Pope Benedict XVI denounced same-sex marriage, calling premarital sex and cohabitation “gravely sinful” and “damaging to the stability of society.” He also warned his visitors about the “powerful political and cultural currents seeking to alter the legal definition of marriage.”
In the United States, Massachusetts, Iowa, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, and the District of Columbia allow gay marriage. Washington State and Maryland recently passed same-sex marriage laws. New Jersey also approved same-sex marriage, but Gov. Chris Christie vetoed it upon passage.
