Audio: NY Catholic leaders forfeiting right to ever again pit gays against religious freedom

by Jeremy Hooper

All we hear all the time from anti-equality Catholic Bishops and their allies at the almost-exclusively-Catholic National Organization For Marriage is the claim that gays, via their *CIVIL* marriage equality, are standing in crude opposition to religious freedom.
