As images of God, who reigns supreme over creation, man and woman have been endowed with the capacity to act as His royal representatives in the work of creation. This capacity is oriented to the gift of human procreation.

These points demonstrate the lack of rational or religious foundation for legally sanctioned homosexual unions. Such unions cannot express love in the married state as was intended in the creation of man and woman and which is discernible by reason.
