“…the Church recognizes the word, “marriage,” as designating only one datum: the fleshly union of one man and one woman…in an exclusive way, allowing no others. It is this exclusive union of love which alone is fertile and thus the nursery of the human race until the end of time. Any other so-called “marriage,” including so-called “same-sex marriage,” is a forgery and death-dealing sterile and doomed to frustration and the ruin of body and soul…”
(Antiochian Metropolitan Joseph in a Marriage Directive)
