Mark Shea comments re: "gay marriage":
The advent of the catastrophic social experiment gay 'marriage' (like it's far more lethal ancestor no-fault divorce) may be a surprise to us, but it's not a surprise to God. The Church will be guided through these turbulent waters as He has ever guided us.
Very good point about it not being a surprise to God.  We'll fumble around in our response, but the Church will not fall into error. That doesn't mean that individual Catholics, priest, or even bishops won't goof up somehow. This is one of the reasons it is hard to be Catholic. We may have certainty, but we don't have certainty that we will live by what the Church is certain of.

I think, though, that no-fault divorce is not more lethal than "gay marriage." I suppose I'd have to know why he thinks no-fault divorce is "lethal."  If he means "to the soul," I'm not sure how it could be.
