Another Bishop (who's in no way forced to marry gays), another day (where NOM will ignore this reality)

by Jeremy Hooper

The National Organization For Marriage is a largely Catholic organization, so it's no surprise that they're pushing the words of yet another Bishop (this time from Wisconsin) to justify their own organizational war against *CIVIL* marriage equality:

Another theme concerns marriage. “The nature of marriage between a man and a woman is established by the Creator as the foundation of the family, which in turn becomes the first and vital cell of society. ... Due to its service to life, including the procreation and necessary formation of new citizens, marriage is a social — not just a sacred — good that government needs to recognize, encourage and protect.”

That's great, Bishop -- for you and the congregants who choose your guidance.

Thats great, NOM -- for you and the families who wish to define their marital acceptance by personal theology.


Now if we can please be excused, the rest of us need to go finish up our completely separate national conversation regarding constitutional law, equal protection, due process, and civil rights, so that all Americans -- wholly independent from chosen faith -- can maybe come together at some point this century and solve actual societal problems.
