Civil Divorce if Proposition 8 Overturned?

Question to Canonist Ed Peters:

If the Court presumes to equate our Matrimony, the Queen of Sacraments, with Sodomy;

Can we not regard the action as having abrogated the terms of the civil rite, rendering what was formerly a mirror or echo of the essential Sacrament, now a ludicrous parody?

Co-Author with Sherif Girgis and Robert P. George of “What Is Marriage“, Heritage Foundation speaker Ryan T Anderson, rather unilaterally “debated” some of this question with CNN’s Piers Morgan and Suze Orman, the latter living an active homosexual lifestyle in a “committed relationship” spanning more than a decade.

(The video has been removed from the LifeSiteNews article “Must-see video: A marriage expert’s masterful handling of Piers Morgan” by Rob Bluey Thurday, March 28, 2013.)

Mr. Anderson refers to the fact that in all fifty states, religious institutions are legally capable of performing [counterfeit] “marriage” ceremonies for people of any lifestyle persuasion; therefore, why is it necessary that government attempt to alter the definition of authentic, natural marriage?

In light of the universal availability already of this “marriage” parody, why should we continue to legitimize the civil rite, if the Court so unwisely equates it with a civil abomination?

Should we not turn the tables and stop suffering the tax-code marriage penalty?

Can we morally go through civil divorce en masse?

The Unseemly Campaign Directed at One Man

by Austin Ruse

Justice Kennedy

Many years ago I sat with Justice Scalia at a Catholic prayer breakfast in New York City. As we ate, a waiter approached, leaned into Scalia and handed him a FedEx package. This was suspicious since FedEx does not deliver on Sunday.

Scalia said, “Must be a bomb” and tossed it unopened into the middle of the table where it lay ticking for the length of the morning. Scalia said it was probably some message about a case, probably Roe v. Wade. You got the feeling he gets this kind of thing all the time.

Scalia went on to say that in simpler times, members of the public likely did not know the names of the Supreme Court justices and that is the way it is supposed to be. The Court’s decisions should not be so intrusive into people’s lives that it would occur to them to learn their names let alone lobby them.

The Supreme Court has likely never seen a campaign like the one unfolding around the twin Prop 8 and DOMA cases. Continue reading

More revelations of Paris police brutality and provocations against peaceful families during march

Police forces grossly underestimated the turn-out – even though they probably had better advance knowledge of the mobilization than the “Manif’s” organizers themselves – and allegedly deliberately created the conditions for dangerous over-crowding and panic scenes.

A young person attacked without provocation is thought to have sustained permanent eye damage from tear gas gel.

One million, four-hundred thousand people in the streets on Sunday, March 24, 2013, and revelations of police brutalities and provocations against peaceful families marching against same-sex “marriage” have not changed French president François Hollande’s stance on the draft law legalizing “marriage” and adoption for homosexual couples due for its first reading in the Senate next week.

Question: “Hello, I was going to ask if there’s a way we that can get the equivalent of the pro-life advertising foundation, the Vitae Caring Foundation, for the Defense of Traditional Marriage? It seems like we’re about to get slammed on Proposition 8 at the Supreme Court; and we’re going to get officially declared to be ‘bigots’, and we’re going to lose our window of opportunity. But, we have an example in this pro-life advertising, where they have reduced abortion rates more than 35% in markets where they advertise. You have your own program Life on the Rock, November 18, 2010, Dr. Carl Landwehr, with Fr. Mark and Fr. Anthony, showing about this. Can’t we get this for the Defense of Traditional Marriage?”

Fr. Mitch Pacwa answers: “Actually, you have an excellent idea. However, there is a problem, Continue reading
