    In this context Pope Francis has repeatedly argued that the legalisation of same-sex marriage would be "a step backwards for humanity" (an 'anthropological regression')[3] and gravely harm us all - homosexuals included - because the health of the 'human ecology' depends on a healthy marital culture.[4] Such a culture draws the two sexes together in married life and ensures that, as far as possible, children receive the gift of the contributions of both male and female parents, committed to each other and to them.[5]Quoting from the Australian Bishops' Pastoral, Don't Mess With Marriage, and making it his own in his celebrated exhortation, Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis insists that each of the spouses "contributes in a distinct way to the upbringing of a child. Respecting a child's dignity means affirming his or her need and natural right to have a mother and a father."[6] The 'ideological colonisation' resulting from confusing presentations of sexuality and marriage disfigures God's plan for creation, denies children their natural rights, harms individuals and communities, and must be resisted.[7] Yet sadly "many countries are witnessing a legal deconstruction of the family, tending to adopt models based almost exclusively on the autonomy of the individual will."[8]

    Far from revoking the Catholic Church's two-thousand-year-long insistence that (according to divine revelation and the natural law) marriage can only be between a man and a woman,[ix]Pope Francis has been a strong advocate of that very position. Those claiming his support in their campaign for a Yes vote in the forthcoming plebiscite have either not read him or are deliberately misrepresenting him. To vote with Pope Francis is to VOTE NO.

    PJ Is just having trouble concealing his inner totalitarian

    At his core he's just like any other leftist - "I don't like it, so you can't have it''

    Who cares, I’m not a member of the organisation.

    I just have to vote every few years and pick the least worst option

    Religion doesn't have all the answers and shouldn't get in the way of progress imo.

    In what you’ve quoted above, where does Francis say that “Australian Catholics should vote “No” in the SSM postal survey, otherwise they should not consider themselves Catholics” ?

    That our National Broadcaster has no place in a progressive, tolerant society?

    You can have it James. But if you want it, go listen to it at a UPF or “ Reclaim Australia” Rally, buy one of Yiannopoulus books or start your own extremist radio stations.

    Let’s not subject impressionable kids in the back of cars to this toxic filth whilst their bogan parents listen to it.

    So civil unions, meaning marriages conducted outside a church which is all the Australian People voted to change the legislation on anyway would be welcomed by the church? Ok.

    Yup, can certainly see quite a few pro-marriage equality Catholics being run out of town with that one.

    So, what were you saying earlier about LGTBI church-going Catholics being walking contradictions?

    So “in private” The church thinks it’s Ok to be gay and a practicing Catholic?

    Certainly seems that’s it’s “off the record”

    https://www.google.com.au/amp/amp.timeinc.net/time/3975630/pope-francis-lgbt-issues

    But let’s look at what Bishop Vincent Long said specifically about how Australian Catholics should vote in the SSM postal survey again:



    Cool, so one of the most senior officials in the Catholic Church in Australia didn’t also state “That if you vote “Yes in the SSM postal survey, don’t bother turning up to mass next Sunday” ?

    I think we can put this one to bed now.
