Read: The Minnesota Archbishop using personal faith to alter shared civil policy (and deeply divide his flock)

by Jeremy Hooper

When this decade's history is written, one story that I suspect will crystallize with hindsight is the one involving Catholic Bishops, their religious overreaching on marriage in every state where it comes up, and the deep divides this crusade caused within the largely more supportive church itself.
