Vatican Decries Society's "Violent Attacks" on the Family

Posted on June 07, 2006

By Gerry O'Connell in Rome: The Vatican in a new document, has denounced the contemporary “violent attacks” on marriage and the family, restated traditional Church teaching on contraception and confirmed it total opposition to the legalisation of same-sex unions and the adoption of children by gays or lesbians.“Never before has the natural institution of matrimony and the family been victim of such violent attacks”, the Vatican said in a 57-page document issued by the Pontifical Council for the Family.

The text, Family and Human Procreation, which was released in Rome on June 6, says the root cause of these attacks on marriage, the family and human life is to be found in the “eclipse of God”, that is in the failure to recognize God as the creator of all human life.
