A letter to the editor of our local newspaper claims for a time, the early Church allowed same sex marriages. I want to write a rebuttal but I need a little help. Several months (years?) ago, I recall reading an article about this subject. As I recall, the article indicated a scandal occurred in the early centuries which led – wrongly – to a modern day understanding that same sex marriages were for a time allowed in the Church. I believe I read about this in “This Rock”, but the early issues are not on line yet and I couldn’t find anything in the newer issues.
Can any of you help me out with this question?
