Obama’s support for gay marriage rejected

On May 9 President Barack Obama affirmed his support for same-sex marriage. Not surprisingly, Catholic leadership has rejected the president’s views.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York and President of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, stated “President Obama’s words are not surprising since they follow upon various actions already taken by his administration that erode or ignore the unique meaning of marriage. We cannot be silent in the face of words or actions that would undermine the institution of marriage, the very cornerstone of our society. The people of this country, especially our children, deserve better. I pray for the president every day, and will continue to pray that he and his administration act justly to uphold and protect marriage as the union of one man and one woman. May we all work to promote and protect marriage and by so doing serve the true good of all persons.”
