Gay marriage as a human right

Gay marriage as a human right

A while back someone asked who were the four Catholic priests who testified before the Massachusetts Legislature against a bill that would define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. One of those priests was Father James Keenan, SJ (of course), and his tortured twisting and selective pruning of Church teaching is something to behold. Here is his testimony in full:

I am Father James F. Keenan, S.J., a Roman Catholic priest and Professor of Moral Theology at Weston Jesuit School of Theology in Cambridge. I am also the next Gasson professor at Boston College, (2003-2005). I received my doctorate in moral theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, Italy.
