Scalia: Priests May Be Forced to Perform Gay "Marriages" or Lose Legal Status
#6
The danger American priests are facing is quite literally the danger of being in the position of countless priests in other Western nations, where the covenant of matrimony is established separately from the contractual marriage before the state. This really isn't so bad.

Many people in countries that have this separation still want to marry in the Church, so to speak, because of the ceremony and whatnot—this is a real problem and pope Francis once touched upon this, and this is what is creating this mass of divorced Catholics. And most churches just don't deny the ceremony because big money is involved (in beautiful churches in nice neighborhoods the average here is one marriage per week in every such church).
In the end the problem is deeper than gays monkeying marriage, and even deeper than Catholics getting divorced: they don't even know what marriage is in the first place.
