The Magisterium’s Arguments Against Same-Sex Marriage: An Ethical Analysis and Critique

The most plausible argument concerns the health of marriage as an institution within which adults take responsibility for child rearing. If the magisterium wishes to present a more persuasive argument for its position against same-sex marriage, it ought to develop this line of reasoning and jettison the practice of casting gay people in a negative light.]
