This is like asking if abortion is OK for cases of rape and incest. Find an exception to justify the whole piece of crap. We already have "power of attorney" for such cases.
I disagree with you. Power of attorney does not cover all the legal aspects that are normally presumed to be only for married couples. My point was that the sexual behavior of the people in a civil partnership does not even have to be a factor.
This by the way is what the Pope said in the interview,
Q “Many nations have regulated civil unions. Is it a path that the Church can understand? But up to what point?”
Pope’s answer, “Marriage is between a man and a woman. Secular states want to justify civil unions to regulate different situations of cohabitation, pushed by the demand to regulate economic aspects between persons, such as ensuring health care. It is about pacts of cohabitating of various natures, of which I wouldnt know how to list the different ways. One needs to see the different cases and evaluate them in their variety.”
