Fr. Michael Rodriguez defends Catholic Teaching in El Paso

Roman Catholic priest, Fr. Michael Rodriguez, defends the Christian faith and position on homosexuality at an El Paso City Council vote to repeal medical benefits from 'unmarried partners'. He maintains that homosexual behavior is unnatural, and not a valid basis for an identity that opposes the Christian faith handed down from God. We should all desire the care for all people, however, sinful behavior is not a basis of that love.

There is a deep rooted belief that implies and instructs that separation of church and state means completely ignoring any reasoning that is religiously derived. This, however, is not the purpose of a separation of Church and State. The Church cannot control the State, but out well-founded and true beliefs are still the valid source of our earthly reasoning.
