Default Gay Marriage

Hi Ron
What are your thoughts on gay marriage affecting Catholic Churches and schools?
Also where does this fit in with your eschatology?
I would love to hear any of your thoughts on this matter
Blessings

I've written a little on the topic of gay marriage on my blog:
https://ronconte.wordpress.com/

From an eschatological point of view, it is part of the decline in morals and the gradual rejection of Christian teaching that precedes the end times. I think that the Warning will change many people's minds on the topics of gay marriage, abortion, and contraception. However, a large segment of the population will continue to cry out against Christian teaching, and in favor of alleged rights and freedoms.

Over the long term, I think society will try to pressure the Church to marry persons of the same sex. Then there will be the internal pressure from Catholics who are overly influenced by secular society, and who seek to remake the Church in the image of society. So the problem is not going to go away.
