Several years ago I engaged in a friendly debate with a good friend, a Jesuit priest, about the persuasiveness of various arguments against same-sex marriage.
Our email exchange found its way to other readers, who suggested that it should be made available to the general public.
So it was that the exchange, reproduced here, was published in the July 2003 issue of Catholic World Report. The essential arguments have not changed.
Link (here) to the full article by Phil Lawler at Catholic Culture and read the persuasive arguments by Fr. Paul, a Jesuit.
