@EconomyRadio : US Conference of Catholic Bishops Calls Supreme Court Ruling on Marriage 'A Tragic Error?' What do you think? Tweet me @EconomyRadio

So, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops have issued the following statement regarding the United States Supreme Court Ruling on Marriage yesterday.

I want to hear from my readers and radio show listeners about this by my TWITTER FEED @EconomyRadio

Here is the 'official statement."

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Supreme Court decision, June 26, interpreting the U.S. Constitution to require all states to license and recognize same-sex “marriage” “is a tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us,” said Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

The full statement follows:

" Regardless of what a narrow majority of the Supreme Court may declare at this moment in history, the nature of the human person and marriage remains unchanged and unchangeable. Just as Roe v. Wade did not settle the question of abortion over forty years ago, Obergefell v. Hodges does not settle the question of marriage today. Neither decision is rooted in the truth, and as a result, both will eventually fail. Today the Court is wrong again. It is profoundly immoral and unjust for the government to declare that two people of the same sex can constitute a marriage. The unique meaning of marriage as the union of one man and one woman is inscribed in our bodies as male and female. The protection of this meaning is a critical dimension of the “integral ecology” that Pope Francis has called us to promote. Mandating marriage redefinition across the country is a tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us, especially children. The law has a duty to support every child’s basic right to be raised, where possible, by his or her married mother and father in a stable home. Jesus Christ, with great love, taught unambiguously that from the beginning marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman. As Catholic bishops, we follow our Lord and will continue to teach and to act according to this truth. I encourage Catholics to move forward with faith, hope, and love: faith in the unchanging truth about marriage, rooted in the immutable nature of the human person and confirmed by divine revelation; hope that these truths will once again prevail in our society, not only by their logic, but by their great beauty and manifest service to the common good; and love for all our neighbors, even those who hate us or would punish us for our faith and moral convictions. Lastly, I call upon all people of good will to join us in proclaiming the goodness, truth, and beauty of marriage as rightly understood for millennia, and I ask all in positions of power and authority to respect the God-given freedom to seek, live by, and bear witness to the truth."

God defined marriage. Since God defined marriage, it is not for the US Supreme court to re-define marriage, by one man's vote.
Make no mistake, the LGBT community also were born with hearts seeking God. Christians who know what the Holy Bible says cannot condone same sex marriage, not out of hate, but out of Love, the love as one would have watching a blind loved one heading for a cliff. We shout, "you are going the wrong way", out of love, so one does not lose life and separate from the family God intended for each one of us God created.
Romans 1:32. If followers of our Lord and Savior state it is ok, we would be misleading, therefore, God will hold whoever misleads to be held responsible as well.
