Question Raised by Marriage Document (1999)

Thinking Anglicans has posted a link to the 1999 official marriage document that precedes the more recent summary. Its opening paragraph raises an interesting question. If, as it states, "The love of God the Father for his Son is the ground of all human love..." then precisely what implications does this homoousial love have for the doctrine of marriage?

So, is there such a thing as "grasping at homoousian straws?" Me thinks there's a bit afoot.

There does indeed seem to be much of that. It seems that the more the "defenders of marriage" press their defense the further from the actual tradition, and sound doctrine, they wander -- which to me is the best indication of error in their fundamental proposition!
