    I think that Cardinal George said it the best,

    I believe he said something to the effect that there is no such thing as Gay marriage. There is no such thing as a round square either. The two are completely contradictory.

    I hope I quoted him correctly

    I agree. Irregardless if you quoted him correctly or not, “gay marriage” is an oxymoron.

    Thanks for writing the article.
    “As a member of God’s creation each person should be given the due respect that a person deserves because in the eyes of the Lord we are not separated by age, color, race, or sexual orientation (Cf. Gal. 3:28). Each person may not be equal in all abilities, but we are equal in dignity.”

    Sometimes people ask me what catholic views/teaching is on this subject and I’m not sure how to answer correctly. The above quote really sums up feelings that are hard to appropiately put into words.

    Idon´t know much about U.S. law. What is the difference (legally) between marriage and civil unions?
    Does the Catholic Church support civil unions of gays?

    Legally, I don’t think there is a difference. There is also common law marriage where a couple is considered married (for legal purposes) after they are living together for x amount of years.

    I do not know the Church’s stance on civil unions for homosexual couples (I do know that civil unions, or the legal benefits thereof, are often supported for entirely different reasons that would allow for homosexual couples as a side-effect), but I oppose legalizing civil unions with the express intent of them being used as “gay marriage”.

    Gay marriage is impossible like divorce and remarriage is impossible.
