In any event, if you are not Catholic, why would you care what Catholic Marriage Sacrament Laws were? So if you are Catholic, or want to be, then the Laws do apply to you.
And if you are an actively practicing homosexual, why would you want to be Catholic anyway? I mean unless you know her to be the one true church. And if she is the one true church then she is the one set up by Christ. So it is Christ’s rules, not the RCC.
I mean to say your arguments are with God, not the RCC.
As for SSM, is it just for the financial reasons that gays want it? I mean (with all due respect and attempt to discuss in all respect) does it have anything to do with not wanted to live in adultry. Why would you want a marriage sacrament instead of just a license? I really am interested.
Is marriage a “right” or a “rite”? For the Catholic Church it is a “rite” and you must meet certain criteria. Not everyone is eligible. Just because someone was formerly married and can’t get married under the rules doesn’t make them the target of bigotry. The same with mariiage being between one man and one women. It is not bigotry, it is just a rule.
