July 31, 2003 – Vatican Begins Campaign Against Same-Sex Marriage

“The Vatican has launched a global campaign against gay marriages, warning Catholic politicians that support of same-sex unions is ‘gravely immoral.’ The Vatican issued a 12-page set of guidelines with the approval of Pope John Paul II in a bid to stem the increase in laws granting legal rights to homosexual unions in Europe and North America.

‘Marriage exists solely between a man and woman… Marriage is holy, while homosexual acts go against the natural moral law,’ the 12-page document by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said Thursday [July 31, 2003].”
