To build or to destroy?
Merriam-Webster defines the transitive verb build as “to form by ordering and uniting materials by gradual means into a composite whole”; and destroy as “to ruin the structure, organic existence, or condition.”
It is obvious to which absolute divorce falls. And when a marriage is destroyed, the family is destroyed and so with the whole of society.
As the great St. John Paul II says: “As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.”
Our Constitution states, “Marriage, as an inviolable social institution, is the foundation of the family and shall be protected by the State.” Couldn’t we then legislate proposals that could rebuild rather than destroy?
