Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith: Regarding the Legal Recognition of Homosexual Unions

This is the 2003 document from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in respect to homosexual unions and the legal recognition of gay "marriage"entitled Considerations Regarding Proposals to Give Legal Recognition to Unions Between Homosexual Persons. From the document:
In those situations where homosexual unions have been legally recognized or have been given the legal status and rights belonging to marriage, clear and emphatic opposition is a duty. … If all Catholics are obliged to oppose the legal recognition of homosexual unions, Catholic politicians are obliged to do so in a particular way, in keeping with their responsibility as politicians.
