Washington D.C., Nov 20, 2012 / 04:17 am (CNA).-
Catholics seeking to build up a strong culture of marriage must focus on promoting a healthy understanding of it rather than simply fighting against attacks, according to the author of a new book on discussing marriage.
“Our goal isn’t to prevent same-sex couples from marrying,” said William B. May, president of Catholics for the Common Good, a San Francisco-based lay apostolate that seeks to evangelize the culture.
Rather, he explained, the goal is to promote marriage, the fundamental social institution that unites the parents of children who come into the world from their union.
