Bill Donohue on marriage

Have I ever mentioned that Christianity conceives of marriage as merely a cosmic license for sexual intercourse, in order to procreate? I think so.

Not only is love as a basis for marriage a relatively recent phenomenon — most marriages throughout history were arranged or based on duty — it is profoundly detached from the historical purpose of marriage, which is procreation. Once love is given primary status as a condition for marriage, the institution itself is no longer recognizable.
