In my own opinion, I am not on the side of same sex marriage. YES, we know that we cannot avoid those same sex relationship but ending up their relationship into marriage is not quite in favor in the Roman Catholic side. Marriage is the union of man and woman, so if both sex will be united that is possibly not marriage.

But that was all my opinion and I just want to share it out to everyone here.

Good day! Thanks =)

Even if the state does not force churches into performing homosexual marriages, the damage to society remains.

As I said in another post, once the state gives itself the authority to redefine the essence of things, the state becomes the arbitor of how society interacts. Do you honestly believe the legalizing of homosexual marriage is the end of the road? Once the state has codified into law the embracing of all types of sins and vices, the people become immune to wanting that which is good, healthy, and true and will demand an end to any concessions the state may make regarding the rights of the religious.
