USCCB Responds to Tim Kaine

As pastors of the Church it is timely to reaffirm the Church’s authoritative teaching about marriage as it comes to us from God as the author of creation and of revelation. The Catholic Church’s teaching on marriage as exclusively the permanent, faithful, and fruitful union of one man and one woman cannot change.

 As the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches, hearkening back to the timeless words of the Book of Genesis: “‘The intimate community of life and love which constitutes the married state has been established by the Creator and endowed by him with its own proper laws…. God himself is the author of marriage.’ The vocation to marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator” (CCC, no. 1603). And despite so many various cultural changes and understandings, this “order of creation persists…” (no. 1608).
