Cardinal: Gay Couples Are In "Friendships"

“Marriage is what it is, what Jesus said from the beginning: Two in one flesh, for which man leaves his family and joins himself to his wife; and wife leaves her family, and joins herself to her husband.  There must surely be ways in our civil society, where we can honor friendships, where we can respect other people, without destroying the nature of marriage. It is very important, for your whole lives, give witness to what marriage truly means. And while civil laws might change – if they do – then society will be the worse for it." - Cardinal Francis George, speaking at a special Chicago mass for couples celebrating their 50th anniversaries.
