So how come the Catholic Conference of California is so outspoken as to declare that
“…the bishops say their position is based partly on the presumption that while all people deserve to be treated with dignity, being raised by a married mother and father is “the ideal for the well being of children.”
Seems like the pot calling the kettle black to me. Hello, any ever seen the classic film Carrie?
Religion may need to be tolerated due the First Amendment, but it certainly doesn’t need to be favored. I’m not sure at all that kids should be allowed to be adopted into or fostered by fundamentalist religious families due to the mental stress it thereby places on the most innocent and vulnerable of our population.
But if a California constitutional amendment banning those of conservative religious faiths to marry would be against the First Amendment, perhaps all we really need to do is declare homosexuality to be a matter of choice – religious choice, that is. And sue, sue sue.
