Cardinal Müller cautions: Italian civil-union proposal must not be considered equivalent to marriage

[Wishful thinking? Whistling past the graveyard? Nonetheless, His Eminence may be correct in the sense that where sodomite-unions are legalized, sodomarriage soon follows, because “they” consider the former insufficient and want the “real thing” of the latter]

Catholic World News – February 25, 2016

The prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has echoed an argument by the Vatican’s Secretary of State, saying that same-sex unions can never be considered equivalent to marriage.

Cardinal Gerhard Müller made his comment on February 25, just after Cardinal Pietro Parolin had made the same point during a reception with Italian officials. Both cardinals were obviously referring to the Italian government’s drive for legal registration of civil unions. Neither cardinal spoke directly about that proposal.

Politicians must serve the community and not impose a false ideology,” Cardinal Müller said. He added that in making this comment he was not interfering with Italian secular politics. Rather, he said, “it is to say to the politicians to respect the human nature over which they aren’t masters.”

  1. Make sure civil unions are not confused with marriage? Civil unions are wrong and should not exist – period. Driving a wedge of distinction between unions and marriages doesn’t make unions acceptable all of a sudden.

    That Muller, with his paper trail, has become the relative voice of quasi-tradition is astonishing and speaks volume of where we’re now at.

    • Sodomarriage is worse, and that’s what follows from the legalization of sodomite “civil unions” – in one way or another; i.e., from the legislature or the courts. In this case it may be imposed by the Euro-crats or the Euro-court in Belgium.
