Why Do Catholic Warnings Against Gay Marriage Make Such Boring Reads?

I’m getting so, so tired of reading these proclamations from the Catholic Church to their followers about how they are duty bound to fight same-sex marriage. Like that Texas reverend who insisted all Catholics must fight abortions and legal recognition of gay unions. And now there’s Costa Rica’s bishops, publishing guidelines that are so generic and banal even the church’s most rabid homophobes must be bored by them. “On putting the union between persons of the same sex on equal juridical conditions to that of marriage or the family, the state acts arbitrarily and enters into contradiction with its own duties.” Oh WHATEVER! Didn’t your ancestors write the Bible? Show some creativity! At least that Mexican guy was able to make us laugh with his decaffeinated coffee joke.
