MN church leaders defend marriage in an ecumenical show of support for the Minnesota Marriage Protection Amendment. (Sept. 18) “Our understanding of marriage between a man and a woman predates any government, or in fact, any religious denomination."
This does NOT mean that the Church hates gays. Men and women are complementary; marriage is between a man and a woman - it should not be redefined. Love is also not a feeling or emotion, but an act of the will. The Church teaches that we are all loved, regardless of whether we are in a romantic relationship or are married, or not. Because God is Love. In the Eucharist, we have the One who truly loves us living in us, and we in Him. If we receive Him worthily. No exceptions.
