Arrogance or truth?

To the Editor:

I can hardly let pass what Nat Creighton wrote in his letter to the editor about gay marriage.

I went to the Catholic Catechism for a response and found the following: “Each of the two sexes is an image of the power and tenderness of God, with equal dignity though in a different way. The union of man and woman in marriage is a way of imitating in the flesh the Creator’s generosity and fecundity: ‘Therefore a man leaves his father and mother and cleaves to his wife, and they become one flesh.’ All human generations proceed from this marriage union.”

A man does not cleave to another man, nor a woman to a woman because that type of union is not fruitful, not marriage, and not according to God’s plan. Is this arrogance or is it truth? I think truth.
