Catholic Leaders Vow to Hold Firm to Marriage Teaching

The Supreme Court made it’s decision on gay marriage.  Now, various Catholic institutions[1] are speaking out…


Catholic leaders, legal scholars and marriage experts reacted with dismay to the landmark ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges and three related cases.

But they also expressed resolve that the decision would not discourage their efforts to preach and teach the truth about marriage and to advance respect for the institution as a union of one man and one woman committed to the care and education of children.

“The Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision on marriage is not a surprise. The surprise will come as ordinary people begin to experience, firsthand and painfully, the impact of today’s action on everything they thought they knew about marriage, family life, our laws and our social institutions,” said Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, in a statement marking the decision.

In other words, regardless of any Supreme Court decision, the Pope is in fact still Catholic. What any of this means about organized religion as a whole, I’m sure the left will make sure we find out rather soon.
