For your convenience Brad, here is what I said in response to FiveLinden. No need to create a conversation:
Here’s what morality is:
The evaluation of human acts in relation to the good.
The Catholic Church observes that it is good to be alive . Do you agree with that?
What is the one unique way human life happens? What is the one unique way that life flourishes?
On that basis, the Church simply observes what is revealed and proclaims it. If human life is good, and sacred, then shouldn’t we order our actions toward that good end? Is a gay union ordered in the same way toward that end as marriage? No. Do you assert otherwise?
It’s a very simple thing really, and doesn’t require a bunch of fancy scripture passages,and not one negative thing has to be said about gay people.
At the end of the day, it’s not about sexual prohibition or running others down, it’s about “the good” of human existence.
