1917 Canon Law 1013 states: 1) The primary end of marriage is the procreation and education of children. It’s secondary end is mutual help and the allaying of concupiscence. 2) The essential properties of marriage are unity and indissolubility, which acquire a particular fitness in Christian marriage by reason of its sacramental character.
1983 Canon Law 1055 states: 1) The marriage covenant, by which a man and a woman establish themselves a partnership of their whole life, and which of its own very nature is ordered to the well-being of the spouses and the procreation and upbringing of children, has, between baptized, been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament.
Before Vatican II, it was very clear what the purpose of marriage was for, having children and educating them. Secondarily it was for mutual help and a remedy for the distorted sexual drive (concupiscence) caused by Adam and Eve. If you have studied biology 101, you know that reproductive organs are for having babies (procreation). And as a human being you know well that you are not always pure in your sexual desires (concupiscence).
After Vatican II the primary purpose of marriage was changed from having children to “the unitive” (man and woman coming together as one). Then the next purpose was procreation (having children). This was a huge change and paradigm switch.
In the encyclical Humanae vitae #12, Pope Paul VI stated; “the two meanings of the conjugal act: the unitive meaning and the procreative meaning……By safeguarding both these essential aspects, the unitive and the procreative, the conjugal act preserves in its fulness the sense of true mutual love and it ordination towards man’s most high calling to parenthood.
Why am I bringing this point up? Because the greatest threat to freedom for the Catholic Church in the United States (and I would assume Europe), is the homosexual “marriage” battle that is saying it is a civil right to have homosexual marriage and live homosexual, bisexual, transgender lifestyles. And if you oppose this, you will soon be a criminal.
Unknown to most people who do not study history, prior to 1962, sodomy was a felony in every state of the U.S. The Supreme Court upheld Georgia’s sodomy law in 1986. But it then overturned it in 2003 for noncommercial conduct in private between consenting civilians. But non the less, Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas still have not repealed the law against sodomy.
Only in 1965 did the U.S. Supreme Court rule that the government could not prohibit couples from using birth control. But all American were not given the right to use birth control until 1972.
Today children are an afterthought of marriage. The main reason for marriage is because they love each other and want to have the security of marriage until one of them decides to divorce. Children are an add on when they are wanted and it is convenient. Most Catholics are using birth control and a few natural family planning to not have children. They want sex but not the biological results of sexual pleasure. Most youth today think of sex as purely a means to pleasure. In all the pornography and movie sex scenes, you absolutely will not see a pregnant woman afterwards. In the movies it is purely about pleasure or a love relationship and nothing about producing a baby.
Since the primary purpose of marriage has be changed in the Church (again a reminder that the Catholic Faith can not be changed) from children to a loving unity we see few people having children and when they do, it is a boy and a girl that they decided to have like as if they shopped for them at the mall. God gave us marriage to have children, and all of the children that He wants us to have (that means lots of kids).
So as the switch took place from children to unitive love, we find that this also applies to the homosexual union of “love”. They can not have children from their sterile love relationships. Why can they not get married? They love each other. Because God said no, that why.
Since most Catholics use birth control, they also abort their babies at the same rate as non Catholics. It is so simple. Mr. and Mrs Catholic say “I use birth control to not have children when having relationships”. I do this because I want sex but I do not want the children that sex produces. By accident I got the fruit of sex and am pregnant. It is not my fault. I had safe sex and I did all I could to avoid getting pregnant. So I have no other option than to take the morning after pill or to get an abortion.
It was Catholics who got the president elected. (I do not use the president’s name in hope that the HSA and the IRS scanners don’t pick up my blog). It was Catholics along with the homosexuals and feminist who all want the same thing. SEX WITHOUT CHILDREN OR THE OPTION TO KILL THE CHILD WHEN NOT WANTED. So this is what happens when children are put as the secondary purpose of marriage. Look what we have, Catholics voting to get health care that give birth control, sterilization and abortions.
We traditional Catholics are hated by the feminist, the homosexuals and the majority of Catholics because we believe the teachings of God in the Bible and the Church before Vatican II THAT SEX IS TO HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN GOD WANTS TO GIVE US IN MARRIAGE. We know that the greatest gift there can be from God other than heaven are children.
Where have all the children gone, long time passing?
Where have all the children gone long time ago?
Where have all the children gone?
Gone to abortion mills and pills everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Connect the dots. Marriage for love and sex and a maybe a few children by using birth control. Living together to have sexual pleasure without children. Have safe sex, with abortion as Plan B. Few people get married. Most people live together. Most couples that do get married get divorced. Any kind of sex is allowed. Homosexual sex is alright. Homosexual sex is a right. Abortion up to the 9th. month is all right and a right because no woman should be forced to carry a baby she did not want. Saying that homosexual sex and abortion are immoral is a violation of civil rights. Those opposing these civil rights are imprisoned. (All this because Catholic want sex with a few children, health care that pays for sterilization, the poisonous pill and dangerous I.D.s and find nothing wrong with loving homosexual marriages)
We believe in the Bible and the Catholic Church’s teachings. We are blessed to be right with God and wrong with the world. We are blessed to have many children running around. The survival of the fittest will not work for the evolutionary modernist Catholic, because they have no survivals i.e. children. We do. We are so fortunate to be traditional Catholics.
