This is going to be one of the weirdest questions I have ever asked concerning marriage and sexuality…
Say that we stumble upon a planet inhabited with life. There is a sentient alien species distinct from us (homo sapiens) living on that planet. This species has human-like intelligence, has a concept of language, perceives that there is good/evil, etc. (Basically, they act just like us.) In addition, they can produce hybrid offspring with homo sapiens which are healthy and behave just like any one of us.
My question is: What would the Church’s stance be on our interactions with this new species, should something like this happen?
This question has been burning in my mind, even before Pope Francis made his homily on baptizing Martians.
