I can understand the Church’s stance on homosexual activity and why they would never hold gay marriages or recognize them.
But what I don’t understand is how so many Catholics are so politically against the legalization of gay marriage. Or worse, how some Catholics believe than anyone who supports the legalization of gay marriage is sinning.
Isn’t there a point to separation of church and state?
Catholic law isn’t American law. Ultimately, our decisions will all be judged before God - but you can’t require everyone to live a Catholic life. Missing mass is a mortal sin too, but that’s not illegal. If Catholic opinion doesn’t make up the majority opinion, so be it.
And I don’t think those of us who feel this way are sinning simply by feeling this way. I can be supportive of legalizing gay marriage without being supportive of Catholic gay marriage.
