God’s laws have not changed

While students at King’s College London have taken the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey, to task for speaking out against same-sex marriage, San Francisco is now up in arms that its archbishop is defending church teaching in its four Catholic high schools. As San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone told The New York Times, “his concern was that teachers, in their public life, ‘don’t do anything to compromise the mission of our schools.’”

The San Francisco Chronicle has joined the fray against the church, accusing it of “telling them their lives are gravely evil.”

While it is true that the culture has changed remarkably over the past generation, God’s laws have not changed since the beginning of time. There is a notion in the air that the ancient biblical laws have fallen into obsolescence since they were written thousands of years ago, and that church teachings must reflect the culture of the current age. Yet critics of the church cannot explain why the physical laws remain constant. Perhaps it is they, not the church, which have it wrong.
