Traditional marriage between one man and one woman is really about the good of children and families, and the “good of families” is about “the good of society,” said the chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage.

“That’s in the natural order, that’s the way marriage exists in nature, that’s why marriage is important for the social good,” said Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco.

“Nature promotes a child having a father and a mother. There’s no way a child could come into the world other than with a father and a mother.”
