教宗方济各响应公民结合问题的报导

06 三 2014 新聞 没有评论

教宗方济各被问及对于公民结合的意见时,回应说:「婚姻是一男一女之间的事情。

问:很多国家都有公民结合的制度。教会能不能理解此进路?至甚么程度?

教宗:婚姻是一男一女之间的事情。世俗国家因为需要规管众人之间的经济关系,如确保医疗保健,而合理化公民结合,规管各种各样的共处关系。每种个案皆需注视,并评估其多元性。

 Question: Many countries have regulated civil unions. Is it a path that the Church can understand? But up to what point?

Holy Father: Marriage is between one man and one woman. The secular States want to justify civil unions to regulate different situations of coexistence, spurred by the need to regulate economic aspects between persons as, for instance, to ensure healthcare. Each case must be looked at and evaluated in its diversity.
