USCCB dedicates 'First Friday' devotion to marriage cases, NOM's march

by Jeremy Hooper

We've already learned that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops has sent promotional items to every single Bishop in America instructing them to marshal crowds to the National Organization For Marriage's planned march outside the Supreme Court building. But now get this: the USCCB is actually dedicating its "First Friday" of this holy month to both praying for the theological shaping of civil government as well as the and once again promoting the NOM march:

As you surely know, many Catholics abstain from other forms of meat on Fridays (especially during Lent), allowing fish as the only animal-based protein. My related Friday night prayer: that eventually this church's leadership will let these marital red herrings off the hook and free its followers to join us as the table of peace.
