Vatican City, December 14 - Pope Benedict XVI has
suggested that attempts to give gay unions the same status as
marriages between men and women pose a threat to justice and
peace.
"There is also a need to acknowledge and promote
the natural structure of marriage as the union of a man and a
woman in the face of attempts to make it juridically equivalent
to radically different types of union," the pope said in his
message for World Day of Peace 2013, which was presented by the
Holy See on Friday.
"Such attempts actually harm and help to destabilize
marriage, obscuring its specific nature and its indispensable
role in society.
"These principles are not truths of faith, nor are they
simply a corollary of the right to religious freedom.
"They are inscribed in human nature itself, accessible to
reason and thus common to all humanity.
"The Church's efforts to promote them are not therefore
confessional in character, but addressed to all people, whatever
their religious affiliation.
"Efforts of this kind are all the more necessary the more
these principles are denied or misunderstood, since this
constitutes an offence against the truth of the human person,
with serious harm to justice and peace".
The pope's message for World Day of Peace 2013, which takes
place January 1, is entitled Blessed are the Peacemakers.
