"The election is a symptom of a much larger problem," Cordileone said. "Most people don't understand what marriage is."

Who better to explain what marriage is other than a man in a dress and lots of jewelry, who is unmarried and celibate who has been ticketed for impaired driving?

The catholic church says they are open to dialogue, yet, they are filing lawsuits. When will they realize their agenda is transparent?

These Bishops need to realize not everyone is catholic, marriage is a civil rite and court should not even consider there cases under the separation of church & state, Courts are taxpayer funded I'm not catholic and I pay taxes and also vote if they don't like it pack there bags and move to Rome!

All economic issues aside, we spent 8 years going backward on equality under Bush and we WILL spend 8 years moving forward under Obama. Over all of their temper tantrums

if you weren't so stupid and believe me your stupid, that I would entertain the assumption that you were in the least bit correct in any way shape or form, but you're not by any account. if anything the catholic church is the utmost hypocritical religion on earth and one more thing there not the original church you silly fool. So go peddle your little red shows elsewhere........

You're a good illustration of how awful the catholic church is. If they had allowed abortion all these years, your mother could have aborted you and saved the world from your frighteningly stupid comments.

That's pretty harsh. Do you really think that will be the fate of those Bishops?

We can only pray for their hardened hearts and hope for the best.
