If the Catholic Church doesn't support gay marraige, then they're perfectly free to not bless gay marriages in their parishes. They don't need validation by the civil state any more than they need the government to legislate Catholic annulmemt. OTOH, if gays what to marry, they can go to a church that will do their wedding, or if they want a secular wedding, they can have a non-clergyman preside at their wedding. This idea that we should look to Bog Brother to decide which marraiges are valid, and which are not, is ridiculous. Whatever happen to separation of church and state? Marrriage should be immediately deregulated. We don't need government to legislate weddings any more than we need it to legislate baptisms, baby dedications, confirmations, b'nai mitzvah, ordinations, extreme unction, the hajj, etc.

Everything Obama did in his first term was apparently geared to securing his second term. By leaving this nation's borders unsecured, he appeased the illegal immigrants, thus helping to secure the votes of the legal, voting immigrants on Nov 6th.

I guess if the Government of the USA says you will marry Gay people then you will marry gay people, and you will provide abortion and birth control.
If these Bishops do not want to they can pack up and head back to Rome, we won't miss them.

I'm no Obama man, but most presidents probably focus their first term upon getting re-elected. Then their second term is focused upon polishing their legacy. How about just governing effectively? Bush also had an open borders policy in pursuit of Karl Rove's "sustainable" Republican majority and in appeasement of business wanting to depress wages. This is one reason why I did not support Obama or Romney.

The Church of Pedophilia has NO moral or ethical standing with which to attack gay marriage, birth control, abortion, or ANYTHING.

They need to sit down and shut up, and stop pretending they have the right to instruct their parishoners how to vote.

As a criminal organization, I'd like to see their tax-free status revoked and their leaders jailed, in fact...

Please document your claims that our borders are "unsecured" and that illegals voted in the last election.

Thanks...

Sure they have rights - but ONLY within their church. They have no rights anywhere else.

I'll bet many of them fighting gay marriage are gay themselves. They should at least be honest.
