Conferência dos Bispos dos EUA Reage à Decisão Pró-Gay da Suprema Corte


A Conferência dos Bispos Católicos dos Estados Unidos (USCCB) chamou de "erro trágico" a decisão da Suprema Corte dos Estados Unidos em forçar o casamento gay para todos os 50 estados dos EUA.

No texto, a USCCB diz basicamente que assim como a decisão pró-aborto da Suprema Corte em 1973 não decidiu que aborto é certo, esta decisão pró-gay não decidi o que é casamento. Pois as duas decisões não têm base na verdade humana. A decisão da Suprema Corte não muda absolutamente nada, o verdadeiro casamento é entre homem e mulher, inscrito na natureza humana, dentro do Plano de Deus, como reafirmou Jesus Cristo, e os cristãos têm de continuar a defender isso em todas as esferas.

Supreme Court Decision On Marriage “A Tragic Error” Says President Of Catholic Bishops’ Conference

June 26, 2015
WASHINGTON—The U.S. Supreme Court decision, June 26, interpreting the U.S. Constitution to require all states to license and recognize same-sex “marriage” “is a tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us,” said Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

The full statement follows:

Regardless of what a narrow majority of the Supreme Court may declare at this moment in history, the nature of the human person and marriage remains unchanged and unchangeable. Just as Roe v. Wade did not settle the question of abortion over forty years ago, Obergefell v. Hodges does not settle the question of marriage today. Neither decision is rooted in the truth, and as a result, both will eventually fail. Today the Court is wrong again. It is profoundly immoral and unjust for the government to declare that two people of the same sex can constitute a marriage.

The unique meaning of marriage as the union of one man and one woman is inscribed in our bodies as male and female. The protection of this meaning is a critical dimension of the “integral ecology” that Pope Francis has called us to promote. Mandating marriage redefinition across the country is a tragic error that harms the common good and most vulnerable among us, especially children. The law has a duty to support every child’s basic right to be raised, where possible, by his or her married mother and father in a stable home.

Jesus Christ, with great love, taught unambiguously that from the beginning marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman. As Catholic bishops, we follow our Lord and will continue to teach and to act according to this truth.


I encourage Catholics to move forward with faith, hope, and love: faith in the unchanging truth about marriage, rooted in the immutable nature of the human person and confirmed by divine revelation; hope that these truths will once again prevail in our society, not only by their logic, but by their great beauty and manifest service to the common good; and love for all our neighbors, even those who hate us or would punish us for our faith and moral convictions.

Lastly, I call upon all people of good will to join us in proclaiming the goodness, truth, and beauty of marriage as rightly understood for millennia, and I ask all in positions of power and authority to respect the God-given freedom to seek, live by, and bear witness to the truth.

Boa tarde Pedro.
Eis uma boa e dignissima notícia de que eu precisa. É gratificante recebermos uma notícia assim. Certamente isso só fortalece nossa esperança com relação aos cristãos dos EUA, e dissipa as nuvens do desespero que nos atormentou durante esse final de semana passado. Vamos continuar rezando, rezando e rezando pelos católicos, padres e bispos dos EUA, para que eles continuem sendo essa grande resistência contra os avanços da agenda gay. Igualmente, devemos rezar pelos protestantes que semelhantemente tem combatido os ataques das loucras progressistas contra a fé cristã. Infelizmente, nossos telejornais nacionais vão continuar noticiando as coisas por aqui para dar a entender que eles já ganharam.
Abraços!

É verdade, Adilson.
Eles querem que a gente se sinta no inferno, no qual, como eu expus a imagem em outro post, todas as esperanças acabam.
Não! Estamos vivos e lutando com Cristo.
Abraço
