Here the major weapon in its cultural armoury is the offer of a traditional Church wedding. Christians need to do all they can to promote the attractiveness of this event - which should include the churches getting involved in the offering of "total wedding packages." Such packages would offer reception, transport, photography and so on, all at a good standard yet at far more reasonable rates than their secular rivals. In this way, a secondary objective might also be achieved of reducing the ludicrously extravagant sums that are increasingly spent on weddings by people that can ill afford them. Of course these packages need to be backed-up by better pre- and post-marriage guidance than is offered elsewhere.
Most importantly, though, the teen wanted to help others: “I just wanted people to have a resource where they could find information on why it’s okay to be Catholic and pro-gay, to, hopefully, spread a little bit of love and enlightenment.” With more than 100 resources cited, the teen came to the same conclusion that most of us have: “When you tell people that they cannot marry based upon your prejudices and archaic traditions … you reject God and Christ’s plan for love, and you reject what they stand for. Do you know better than God?” The paper goes on to remind everyone that we’re all really here to love: “Marriage is not between man and woman, marriage is between love and love. Love is not wrong, love is not a mistake, love is not an abomination, love is just love.”
