Marriage is a Sacrament. It has been for two thousand years. Anything that anybody does to disrespect it is guilty of ‘destroying marriage’, as everyone likes to call it. Whether it’s divorce, gay marriage, or adultery…it’s all committing sacrilege and perverting what it was created for: for mutual sanctification and for the generation and education of children.
Don’t believe me? Consult the Catechism of the Council of Trent. Consult Scripture. Both Old and New Testament will tell you the same thing. Our Lord’s presence at the wedding in Cana made marriage a Sacrament. He tells us that a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife (Gen. 2:24). And to ‘put her away’ and marry another is to commit adultery (Matthew 19:3-9). And notice the words our Lord uses. Man and wife.
Those who say that Scripture does not speak clearly on these issues of divorce, adultery and gay marriage, have clearly not read Scripture.
