This Catholic student stood up to his teachers with an essay called Gay Marriage Is Fabulous

The Catholic high school had asked him to write a paper on why gay marriage is “wrong and dangerous”.

By Edward Dracott

A student from a Catholic school produced a 127-page pro-gay marriage paper after he was asked to write an essay defending the church’s stance on the matter.

The essay Gay Marriage Is Fabulous – which took them four months to complete – was produced by Reddit user averagesmurf after his teacher had apparently asked his class to “show and prove that the church’s position is right”.



Although the Reddit user hasn’t identified themselves they have offered some proof to their claim by posting the paper in full online – which you can see here.

“It has become evident–through laborious and rigorous study, work, and reflection–that Christ never condemned homosexuality, God never condemned homosexuality, and nor does the Bible condemn homosexuality.” the student wrote. “To suggest that God or Jesus would ever object to a loving, devoted, loyal marriage between two same sex individuals is laughable.

“On the contrary, Jesus Christ would never condemn love.”

The student had apparently been set the task in a class called Morality, as the school requires them to take religion classes each semester. In the essay the student reveals they are not heterosexual.

In comments made on Reddit the student posted images as proof, but said they believe the paper’s conclusions are “nothing overly groundbreaking”.

The paper ends: “God created you, and he made no mistakes, God created me gay, and he made no mistakes: ‘For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected’ (1 Tim. 4.4-5).

“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.”
