Audio: Bill Donohue equates Catholic view on marriage with stance on 'slavery, racism, or genocide'

by Jeremy Hooper

More than a few Catholics support marriage equality, obviously. Many of these same Catholics reject slavery, racism, and genocide—obviously. These are not conflicting positions. Resisting social ills and/or mass killing is not in anything resembling the same ballpark as supporting civil fairness.
