Superiority, Truly

"Indeed, the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California Constitution the notion that opposite-sex couples are superior to same-sex couples" - Chief U.S District Judge Vaughn Walker

Opposite-sex couples are superior, when looking at the State's interests, as only opposite-sex couples are capable of generating and rearing children, which are desperately needed for the continuance of our society (not to mention paying off the national debt). Any policy should reflect reality.

In Catholicism heterosexual couples are unquestionably superior to homosexual couples. This ruling does not change that.

In civil marriage, procreation is one of many interests of the state, and it is not a requirement. The state has a compelling interest in providing marriage licenses to heterosexual couples that can't or choose not to have children.

It is understandable the Catholic church laments that civil marriage has deviated so far the convictions embodied in Catholic marriage. Catholics should work on changing the modern view of marriage through the hearts and souls of new and existing members, not through legislation.

Bring homosexuals and couples electing childless marriages into the Church. The road to salvation is not through mandates by legislation.
