Catholic and Baptist leaders react to Obama’s gay marriage support
In a move that was as predictable as the sunrise, The US Conference of Catholic Bishops portrayed President Obama’s statement of support for Gay Marriage as an attack on marriage yesterday. That card’s worn thin from all the times they’ve played it, and it’s growing almost as old as the patriarchy of old celibate theocrats in dresses who are trying to run other people’s lives.
Leaders of the nation’s two largest religious denominations are expressing distress and sadness at President Barack Obama’s newly announced support for gay marriage.
New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who heads the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, says Obama’s remarks “undermine the institution of marriage, the very cornerstone of our society.” He adds, “The people of this country, especially our children, deserve better.”
