That if there is to be any hope that we will not merely be laughed at (as happened last month at the U.S. Supreme Court) when we point out the common sense truth that gay “marriage” cannot really be marriage because marriage and procreation go hand in hand, and gays cannot procreate, it will only be because we are joyfully welcoming children into our own marriages; or because we have not deliberately rendered our own marriages sterile through mutilation or contraception; or because we ourselves have rejected the use of technologies that violently wrench the process of procreation from its only rightful place within the beautiful act of marital intercourse and transplanted it into to a laboratory.
And if there is to be any hope of not merely appearing ridiculous when we say that true marriage is infinitely better than gay “marriage” for children because it gives them both their biological mother and father and is more stable, it will only be because we ourselves have done the hard work of building stable, faithful marriages; or because we ourselves have not voluntarily deprived our own children of either their mother or father.
And if we are not to be scoffed at when we say that sex is “sacred” and only properly expressed within the confines of a marriage between a man and a woman, it will be because we ourselves are living emblems of the joy of living chastely; because we ourselves have rejected promiscuity, pornography, and infidelity; and because our pastors preach and our churches teach that sex is sacred and have refused to compromise with the culture of divorce and promiscuity.
In other words, if there is going to be any hope of saving traditional marriage, then we will have to discontinue this charade, in which all of us are implicated to one degree or another, of accepting or indulging in our favorite portions of the Sexual Revolution, but then complaining bitterly when the revolution leads precisely to where it promised to lead.
We simply cannot convincingly stand guard over the citadel while at the same time plundering its spoils. No. If we are ever to see the restoration of a culture of true marriage, then we are going to have to start being consistent. And that starts with you, and me, today. (Source)
At the end of the day, it’s all about the Sacraments of Separation. Divorce and “Remarriage”, Adultery, Contraception, Sterlization, Abortion. You can’t defend marriage, if you don’t know what it really means. Deep inside the human consciousness, people can smell BS. If you don’t really believe in marriage as the Catholic Church defines the term (whether you are Catholic or not), it’s only a matter of time before every filth and depravity enters human civilization and starts to tear it down, one child at a time.
Don’t bother with the politics or the legalities of the issue. It’s a pipe dream to believe that people will practice what you preach when you preach something which is not really marriage, anyhow.
Only authentic witness and practice will change the culture. Only holiness and discipline. Everything else is bullkaka, and the other side knows it, too.
