Bishop Salvatore Cordileone determined to define Catholic church by who, what it's against

Screen Shot 2014-06-12 At 1.37.24 PmJust days before he is scheduled to be one of the star speakers at the National Organization For Marriage's pro-discrimination march in the nation's capitol, Salvatore Cordileone is continuing to persuade his canonical colleagues that the political fight against same-sex couples' *CIVIL* marriages is the modern Catholic Church's top interest:

NEW ORLEANS, LA, June 11, 2014 ( – Much of the opening day of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops 2014 Spring General Assembly on Wednesday was devoted to the defense and promotion of marriage.

Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone of San Francisco, chairman of the USCCB Subcommittee on the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, led the charge by telling his brother bishops: “We are at a critical point in this country as it comes to defense of marriage in the law.”

Archbishop Cordileone outlined the grave situation for the defense of traditional marriage and resulting threats to religious freedom. He noted that if the Supreme Court takes up one of the state marriage amendment cases, by next June 2015 we could have a decision.

Take that, war! And hunger. And homelessness. And poverty. And school shootings. And our literal inability to heal the sick. And...

No word if (or when?) Cordileone is planning on cutting out the middle man (upstairs) and simply turning the Catholic Church into a political action committee. I'll keep you posted.
