The case for religious freedom has been debated ad nauseam since its inception and ratification into law in December 1791.
"Every single rational person knows that sexual relationships between persons of the same sex are unnatural and immoral. They know it in their hearts," Shaffer wrote. "And, yet, they go against what their hearts tell them when they try to argue for same-sex relationships and 'gay marriage.'"While this is simply a taste of the language and sentiments that permeate the Newman Catholic Student Center, the atmosphere spreads to affect those who do not even identify with the center, faith, or seek Father Greg for spiritual advice in the wider University community.
Let us be clear, we are not attacking the Roman Catholic Church. We are by no means asking the Church to change its views on same-sex marriage, nor are we seeking validation or celebration of our sexuality by the Church, or anyone for that matter.
