I'm a widow but was married for 36 years to the same guy. Never once was our marriage threaten, harmed, or endangered by gays, gays unions, or same-sex marriages. We even lived in San Francisco for awhile! This isn't about helping marriages but retaining power, old out-dated dogma, and dictate their religious insanity that institutionalizes their prejudices into our government!
The Archbishop is blandly misusing his church position to elect the GOP candidate Emmer who is also homophobic and doesn't support same sex marriage while Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party candidate Mark Dayton and Independence Party candidate Tom Horner support the rights of the GLBT community. This is outrageous from a religious leader and institution exempt from taxes. Where's the separation of Church and State?
“You’ve got this really interesting funnel of tax-free money coming from the Dioceses and the Council of Bishops and the Knights of Columbus directly to these campaigns. Why are groups like NOM hiding where they’re getting their money? If it turns out to be a front group for the conservative side of the church, Catholics have the right to know because the majority of American Catholics, and we can show you heaps of polls, don’t support that [kind of spending].”
