It’s good to see that the Vatican got this right. They issued a statement barring the blessing of same-sex unions. Why? Because “[God] does not and cannot bless sin.”
They are right. Gay people deserve respect and dignity like everyone does, but we cannot condone actions that are contrary to the teachings of God’s Word.
Marriage is defined as a union before God between a man and a woman in Scripture, beginning in the Garden of Eden: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24).
I hope that every church would see the danger in affirming same-sex marriage and blessing what God has defined as sin.
