Reinventing marriage is not our right

Marriage is an institution exclusive to one man and one woman. Neither Church nor state invented marriage and neither can change its nature (Comment, March 25).

The new 'gender ideology', which is increasingly being imposed on society by Western governments, undermines the fundamental understanding of what it means to be a human.

In seeking to make every individual completely autonomous, it destroys the understanding of the family as a community designed for the rearing of children.

In this radical new understanding of sexuality, children lose their own rights and become mere objects of adult possession.
