This is obvious since society has been TOTALLY DESTROYED in Iowa, Massachusetts, New York, and New Hampshire due to gay marriage.

How many children has the good bishop sexually abused over the years? How many pedophiles has he hidden from justice.

Well he ought to know about destroying societies. The Catholic Church has been doing that for centuries. Of course, like with everything else they "believe," he's wrong...

I wonder now what the catholic church will do now that their reasoning for discriminating against women who would like to be priests (and women in general0 has been punctured by an ancient document stating that Jesus had a female disciple (aka. Priest) and that he was married.
And if Jesus was married what would that do to that would be silly celibacy vow that attracts and encourages pedophilia?

It's probably better than the alternative, which was Jesus was gay.

Didn't Cardinal Thomas Dolan, head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops recently say the church should stay out of politics?

Homosexual acts will destroy society. Amazingly homosexuals seem to relish and revere in the fact that by numbers heterosexuals now have more hiv cases than gays. But if gays were the same amount in numbers to heterosexuals this world would be perilously in danger. The deadly game of tag continues.

Which acts? Working? Going to soccer games? Doing the dishes? Weeding the garden? Kissing?

There are a thousand acts engaged in by each gay person every day, and they are all the same ones that everyone else engages in.

Which will destroy society simply because a person who can only be attracted to the same gender engages in them?

The idea seems rather silly to me, but perhaps you can explain.

How we could bring about the end to society eludes me. Does the church think that if gay marrage were legal everybody would magically turn gay? We do need the heterosexuals too birth us gays you know ; ). REALLY ALL YOU STRAIGHT PEOPLE ARE YOU AFRAID YOU WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO RESIST BEING GAY OR WHAT?
