Well, that's pretty much all the major corporations worth mentioning in Washington state now backing equality. It's now corporate wealth versus religious nonsense. If the churches keep over stepping their bounds it will be corporate versus corporate.

Washington’s four Catholic bishops said that the measure is a threat to religious liberty. The Washington State Catholic Conference issued the bishops’ statement on Tuesday.

"The legal separation of marriage from procreation would have a chilling effect on religious liberty and the right of conscience," the statement read. "Once marriage is redefined as a genderless contract, it will become legally discriminatory for public and private institutions such as schools to promote the unique value of children being raised by their biological mothers and fathers."

Oh PUH-LEEZ! What a steaming hot pile of hyperbole. No, I take that back... it's an outright LIE.

I have always tried not to hate religious organizations, and thought they were just following the dictate of their belief system, even as wrong as they may be. I felt that eventually they would see the light, and realize that their bigotry was wrong-headed, and that they might come back to the basic tenet of love. It is getting more and more difficult to contain and reason away my disgust with these organizations. I do not want to succumb to the emotion of hate, but they make it more difficult every day.

If one cared about their welfare, this piling-up of sin upon sin would be a cause for grave alarm: By the bishops' own belief system, and according to it, they are well on the road to roasting in hell. It's unreal that they are so *possessed* they can't stop.

The bishops statement should be COMPLETELY expected and hopefully FULLY ANTICIPATED by the pro-equality groups.

This is the first salvo in the campaign for marriage equality in Washington. I hope our side is releasing ads & information to directly counter this 100% EXPECTED lie from the anti-gays.

C'mon people, we KNEW THIS WAS COMING!!!

How we respond to this attack- and others to come- will determine whether we win or lose come November.

The entire concept of homosexual 'marriage' is based on lies. Homosexual 'marriage' is a cruel lie with no real basis in how homosexual live!

No significant percent of the homosexual population has 'married' in ANY country that allows it, and studies have shown that few such 'marriages' are even exclusive relationships.

The homosexual 'marriage' movement is a hate based political charade attacking what others hold sacred.

No homosexual relationship shares the reasons for government involvement in real marriage. No economically or physically unequal genders are involve. No child is ever born as a direct result, and no such relationship can provide a child with a father and mother. Having both is one of the most accurate statistical predictions of a child's future success in life.

Homosexual themselves overwhelmingly reject 'marriage' as an actual practice in EVERY country that allows the concocted oxymoron.

Poor David; the judge still won't let you have sex with your own children?

I totally agree.
However, to add some perspective, realize that time is on our side. These same religious organizations were the biggest backers of pretty much every vile and cruel practice that we have seen in history - slavery, misogyny, racism, you name it. Nowadays, it's hard to find a religious organization that still supports slavery or racism (although there are some die-hards). They have to come around to a more humanitarian and moral view or they will die out. Misogyny, not so much unfortunately (sorry, if you don't have a dick, you cannot be a priest in the biggest western religion of all). These religious organizations are not the leaders of morality, they are the followers.
Nevertheless, I, like you, get disgusted - and angry - that we have to witness their immoral ways, and be victimized by it.

Totally agree. I find it amazing that the purveyors (supposed, that is) of the concepts of love, acceptance, and forgiveness have to follow, instead of lead, their flock. You would think it would be the other way around.
