In an effort to stop the legal recognition of same-sex marriages, the Roman Catholic Church is distributing a book, Why Homosexual Unions Are Not Marriages.
This book is fallacy packed.
Why Homosexual Unions Are Not Marriages is worthy of its own parody companion book, Why Shellfish Is Not Nutritious.
Here is an excerpt:
“The New Testament also recognizes the disordered nutrition of shellfish and links its consumption to the rejection of God and his plan: “For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error” (Romans 1:26-27). Instead of glorifying the Lord the people chose to glorify flying things, four-legged beasts, and serpents. Thus, God punished them with the dishonorable passion for shellfish. The women gave up natural relations with clean proteins for unnatural relations with shellfish and other sea creatures lacking fins and scales. The women began to experiment with clambake recipes. Men stopped sharing meals with women consisting of vegetables and clean proteins, and some men headed to the lobster bars and like a modern-day Mardi Gras, the men drank and feasted on shrimp gumbo, neglecting clean proteins. Both the Old and New Testaments thus recognize shellfish eating acts as grave departures from God’s design for human digestion.”
