PhoboQuotable - Archbishop John Myers
"What, then, explains this connection—acknowledged even by those who would redefine marriage—between marriage and sexual activity? Each individual is a complete organism, for every bodily function save one: reproduction. Biologically, reproduction requires the coordination in a particular way of two sexually complementary persons to form an authentic union whose biological function is reproduction. This coordination might or might not lead to conception, but only through it does a couple function biologically as a unit; only such acts bring the couple into a true one-flesh union. Conjugal acts, and only these, fulfill the behavioral conditions of procreation and thus consummate a marital relationship." - Newark Archbishop John Myers, in a lengthy pastoral letter (PDF) demanding the voters oppose same-sex marriage.
