What About a Child’s “Rights”?

Pope w ChildAs same-sex advocates prepare to celebrate a possible Supreme Court decision favoring “rights” to so-called “gay” marriage, Pope Francis has reminded us that children have a “right” to grow up with a mother and father in their family.

When the current Pope was a cardinal in Argentina in 2010, he declared the culture’s radical repudiation of natural, biblical marriage was a diabolical effort of “the Father of Lies” to “destroy God’s plan…and deceive the children of God.”  He warned that “the lives of many children…will be discriminated against in advance and deprived of their human development given by a father and a mother and willed by God.” He further stated that what is “at stake is the total rejection of God’s law engraved in our hearts.”

This natural truth is hard for even selfish secularists to deny: Children have a “right” to grow up in a family, with an involved father and a mother!
