He says that this is exactly NOT TRUE! Says, you just try and name me one, and support what you say with a quote.
In Greek the word for "Marriage/Matrimony" (Gk: "Gamo") is the same word used for the sexual act. So when the Fathers speak of "Marriage" they are speaking about sexual union in marriage
. With this in mind, read the following quotes from the Fathers.
"The natural bond
becomes a yoke through the blessing"- St. Basil the Great.
"While you maintain perfect chastity, do not be puffed up in vain conceit against those who walk a humbler path in matrimony
. As the Apostle says: "Let marriage
be held in honour, and the marriage bed undefiled
". Furthermore, those of of you who keep your chastity; were you not born of those who had married
? Because you have a possesion of gold. do not, on that account, hold the silver in contempt." - St. Cyril of Jerusalem
"Flee from base practices but preach more against them. Speak to my sisters that they love the Lord and be content with their husbands in body
and soul. In like manner, exhort my brothers in the Name of Jesus Christ to love their wives
as the Lord loves the Church." - St. Ignatius of Antioch
"If however, marriage
, though commanded by the Law, were yet sinful- really, I do not see how anyone could say that he knows God and yet say that sin has been commanded by God. If the Law is sacred, then marriage is a holy estate
." - St. Clement of Alexandria
"No one is permitted to know a woman other than his wife. The marital right
has been given to you for this reason: lest you fall into the snare and sin with a strange woman." - St. Ambrose
