Gay marriage? The editor of a Catholic newspaper says it's all your fault, you sick heterosexual sex maniacs, because you use birth control:

 Catholic World News Editor Cites Acceptance of Contraception as Leading to Current Gay Unions Situation

Phil Lawler, editor of the Boston based Catholic World News and author of five books and numerous articles, has responded to today's beginning of legally sanctioned homosexual unions in Massachusetts. In his Phil's Forum for today, Lawler lays out the case that Christians themselves are to a large degree responsible for this logical outcome of the acceptance of contraception.

Lawler writes, "The degradation of marriage did not begin with a Massachusetts court decision late last year. It began a few decades ago, when 'ordinary' married couples… began routinely using contraceptives. At that point, the typical American marriage-- which might have looked, from the outside, very much like that beautiful old union-- was itself based on acts of sexual perversion."...

Lawler argues that because of the norm of contracepted sex Massachusetts citizens and others are "having a difficult time coming up with a persuasive argument why same-sex couples should not be entitled to their own preferred form of sterile sexual expression."

His suggestion for the long term solution to reversing gay 'marriage' legalization is to "Go through your medicine cabinets, dressers, and bedside-table drawers. Gather all the contraceptives. Throw them in the trash, where they belong. If you're Catholic, go to Confession. Then, having put our own houses and homes in order, we can begin the long trek toward restoring the true meaning of marriage."

Sorry I can't link to the article itself -- Catholic World News is a subscriber-only site. But please click the link above -- Lawler cites Freud, Gandhi, and a 1930 Washington Post editorial to make the case that sex without babies is perversion.
