Vatican Uses Gay "Marriage" to Urge for Sunday Legislation
« on: July 02, 2014, 06:54:15 AM »

On June 26, 2014, the Vatican issued a document consisting of responses from bishops or churches around the world on family-related issues. Next year is the 8th World Meeting of Families in the fall of 2015 in Philadelphia. The document deals with the breakdown of the family, and discusses gay "marriage" a bit. It states:

"Some responses recommend preserving the special character of Sunday as the Lord’s Day — even civilly where possible — and encouraging families to meet on this day, not only individually as a family but collectively with other families."

"The pace of work is fast and even exhausting, and work hours, often excessive, can sometimes include Sundays, of which hinders the possibility of a family’s spending time together."

So some bishops or churches recommend that there be civil laws that (a) audaciously define the biblical term "Lord's Day" to mean Sunday instead of the Sabbath, even though the Almighty made it quite clear in His Word that the Sabbath is His day, not Sunday, (b) "preserve" Sunday, which must mean mandating Sunday rest, and (c) thereby unite church and state. Is there any possible way that a civil law defining Sunday as the Lord's Day is not a uniting of church and state? I don't think so.

I also don't think so.
