Canada Makes it Official

Supreme Court Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin signed the bill approved by the Senate Tuesday and by the House of Commons last month, and it was read in the House and Senate, making it law and making Canada the fourth country in the world to recognize same-sex unions as "marriages" nationwide. Predictable to be sure, but still disappointing.

Dr. Rick Fitzgibbons, of the Catholic Medical Association, in a recent Zenit interview, notes that rather than filling a mental health "need" for the stability of the partners and the children they adopt, the recent laws in Canada and Spain serve to sanction behaviors that are clinically associated with increased rates of serious psychiatric and medical illnesses and are harmful to children.
