How the hell is an amendment that keeps gays and lesbians from full equality NOT anti-gay, mean-spirited or prejudicial?

Again-- there has not been a single legitimate argument against gay marriage presented anywhere so far. This letter from the archbishop doesn't change the trend.

The Catholic Church recognizes homosexuality as a mortal sin.
This has been stated time and time again.
The comments from the Archbishop are not surprising, they are in keeping with church dogma. No matter how much people want the Catholic Church to change . . . it will not happen.

Not homosexuality--homosexual behavior. The church has long been quite comfortable with celibacy, fostering it as a higher state than married chastity.

Yes. I stand corrected.

It's a subtlety, but important because of the emotion attached to the issue.
Go and sin no more.

It's a the very least hostile to gays. With all respect to the Archbishop, the Roman Catholic Church should focus on fixing their own problems before they come even close to telling gays and lesbians they shouldn't be able to marry. If he doesn't want Catholic churches blessing gay marriages, that's his right and problem but there's no reason at all why under the eyes of the law gay and lesbians citizens can't be married.
