Don't discriminate against incest

”I want the law to discriminate against all alternative lifestyles,” Bill Donahue said recently on CNN. He includes “co-habitating” couples and LGBT couples. The current president of the Catholic League is divorced, in direct conflict with Catholic law. He challenged ordered Chad Griffin – Presidential appointee to presidency of the Human Rights Campaign – to endorse incestuous marriages. If the nation endorses marriage equality, the logical outcome would be equality for incestuous unions. His confrontational and disruptive behavior during this debate were noted and summarily ignored by both Griffin and CNN's host, Piers Morgan. Donahue claimed definitive proof that the gold standard for marriage is between a man and a woman. He failed to cite any sources of such proof.
According to The Catechism of the CatholicChurch, divorce is a grave offense against the natural law. Sacramental marriage is the sign of the covenant of salvation, to which divorce does incredible injury.
