Wow. This is the best explanation of same sex marriage that I have ever read. Thank you for making it so clear. Observation and Revelation.
So, no Pope can ever announce that the Catholic Church will hereby allow gay marriages.. But, they can bless the gay couple, right? The couple will have to be very disciplined. It can’t be easy for them.
Thank you, Father Dave, as always.

You never answered the question.
There is no such thing as same sex “so called” marriage. They cannot get married.
People need to read the CCC about “GAY” people. They have a problem

I am sure you will notice that the name of my article is “Same Sex Couples AND Marriage.” It is not called Same Sex Marriage, for the very reason that you cite yourself. I think we are in agreement!

THIS WAS A WELL CONSTRUCTED, NO ANSWER. DOES THE CHURCH APPROVE GAY MARRIAGE OR NOT ?
THE OBSERVANCE OF MOST OTHER CREATURES (OTHER THAN MAN ) IS THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE RELATIONSHIPS LIKE MARRIAGE OR SEXUALLY ORIENTED RELATIONS .

No, our Catholic faith actually cannot approve any other marriage arrangement other than one man and one woman. It does not have the authority to change what God has created.

Hi Father Dave, does the Church believe that the Creator just made a certain segment homosexual and/or bisexual?
September 15, 2017 at 7:38 pm
The Church does not have any teaching as to the actual origin of homosexual or bisexual desires. It mainly has a teaching from Our Lord about marriage, and that marriage is between one man and one woman.
We do believe that our physical, biological, social, and psychological makeup as individual persons arise from a complex combination of natural sources, such as heredity, environment, Intelligence, social forces, family history, personal choices, parenting, and psychological issues, to name just a few.
