教宗方濟各回應公民結合問題的報導

06 3月 2014 新聞 未有回應

教宗方濟各被問及對於公民結合的意見時,回應說:「婚姻是一男一女之間的事情。」

問:很多國家都有公民結合的制度。教會能不能理解此進路?至甚麼程度?

教宗:婚姻是一男一女之間的事情。世俗國家因為需要規管眾人之間的經濟關係,如確保醫療保健,而合理化公民結合,規管各種各樣的共處關係。每種個案皆需注視,並評估其多元性。

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.
