Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI, has stressed that marriage between people of the same sex is "a deformation of consciousness" as it has regretted that this perspective has also "penetrated deeply into sectors of Catholic people".
"With the legalization of same-sex marriage in 16 European countries, the matter of marriage and the family has taken a new dimension that can not be ignored," said Pope emeritus in the book 'The True Europe: Identity and Mission', which has been proceeded by Francisco.
It is not the first time that Pope Emeritus makes this type of statements. In May of last year, in an interview that closes a biography of more than a thousand pages written by Journalist Peter Seewald, Benedict XVI launched with marriage between homosexuals and what he called "The Creed of the Antichrist" who, as he explained, punishes with Social excommunication to those who do not adhere to him. "A hundred years ago everyone would have seemed absurd to talk about homosexual marriage. Today everyone who opposes himself is socially excommunicated," said the Pope Emeritus.
In the book that has just been commercialized in Italy, Benedict XVI questions that the response can occur "with a bit of moralism or even with some exegetical references." "This problem is deeper and therefore must be answered in its fundamental terms," he said. In its introduction, Benedict XVI has stated that the concept of "marriage of the same sex" is "a contradiction with all the cultures of humanity that have continued so far, and this means a cultural revolution that is opposite all the tradition of the humanity until today ".
"The basic certainty that humanity exists as a masculine and feminine, and that the transmission of life serves this task and that, in this, beyond all differences, it essentially consists of marriage, it is an original certainty that has been Obvious for humanity so far, "he adds.
During the return flight from Bratislava (Slovakia) to Rome, last Wednesday, the Pope admitted that gay civil union laws "seek to help the situation of so many people with different sexual orientation, and it is important that they help them, but Without giving something that, by its nature, the Church does not give ", which is religious marriage as Sacramento.
"If a homosexual couple wants to lead a life together, States have the chances of giving them security, stability, inheritance, etc. Not only for homosexuals but for all people who want to associate, but marriage is marriage," he considered the Bishop of Rome-Date Of Update: 21 September 2021, 04:34
