Knights of Columbus Ask For Legal Protection Of Marriage

leave a comment »

Citing one man and one woman as a definition, the Knights of Columbus in Quebec at their yearly convention adopted a resolution for the legal and constitutional protection of marriage.

The resolution declares that “marriage is a natural institution based on ancient human values that have evolved over time into a unique and deeply rooted social, legal and religious institution,” and that it “reflects the natural biological complementarity between man and woman which predates the state and which is woven into the social and religious fabric of every major culture and society.”

Marriage between man and woman “provides the most favorable environment in which to protect the rights and the best interests of children,” the resolution stated.

The Knights of Columbus, organized in the late 19th century is the largest Catholic organization of laymen in the world.
