Statement from the Oregon Catholic Conference Concerning Proposed Redefinition of Marriage
Marriage is the conjugal union of one man and one woman, consistent with God’s design. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:
God himself is the author of marriage. The vocation to marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator. Marriage is not a purely human institution despite the many variations it may have undergone through the centuries in different cultures, social structures, and spiritual attitudes. The well-being of the individual person and of both human and Christian society is closely bound up with the healthy state of conjugal and family life.
