“A motley group of public officials, community activists, religious leaders, and gay advocates are upset that Archbishop Cordileone supports marriage, properly understood. It is a striking sociological moment when elites stage a protest of an archbishop in the Roman Catholic Church simply because he believes—as the whole world has believed for thousands of years—that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. It is not a good cultural sign that this commonsensical position is considered controversial, even hateful. Those who are quick to brand support for traditional marriage hateful need to look in the mirror. The archbishop, who is chairman of the bishop’s Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, offered to meet with those offended by his participation in the march. But will they?” – Catholic League blowhard Bill Donohue, via press release.
