Rarely have I seen such a vicious attack on the family as was reported recently coming from Gozo Bishop Mario Grech. In his attempt to redefine the word "family" to refer exclusively to his own preferred definition, he was attacking the families of all single parents and their children, all unmarried couples and their children, all childless couples, all same-sex couples with or without children.
In fact, since according to him, a necessary attribute of families is procreation between the couple, not even Joseph, Mary and Jesus were a family.
Could it be that while declaring that "nobody spoke directly against the family" he didn't realise that this is precisely what he was doing with his own words?
