A question for liberal church-going Catholics

As you probably know, Jesus Christ in the Gospel Reading this past Sunday (Mark 10:2-16) unequivocally defined marriage as the union of a man and a woman.  Now, I know that you Progressive Catholics are fond of claiming that Christ said absolutely NOTHING about homosexuality or homosexual relationships.  But you may also know that court decision after court decision has established beyond any reasonable debate that such a definition of marriage is utterly irrational, that the only motive to define marriage according to sexual difference is animus against gays and lesbians, is to exclude them from the institution of marriage and thereby to condemn them to lives of intolerable loneliness and despair.  So, if you accept these court decisions, and you do, then you must abandon the claim that Christ said NOTHING about homosexual relationship for in defining marriage heterosexually, He was (according to the Obergefell decision in particular)  condemning gays and Lesbians to loneliness.

There is this additional dilemma: you liberal Catholics profess to have a Faith that neither contradicts reason nor is hateful.  And yet Christ, the very reason you are Catholics, taught a definition of marriage that is completely irrational and hateful.  So, my question to you is this:  Why do you continue to profess to worship an irrational bigot?
