“Last week the Massachusetts legislature held hearings on a bill that would
define marriage as a bond between a man and a woman– an effort to stop the
movement toward recognition of same-sex ‘marriages.’ Four Catholic priests
testified at the hearings. All four opposed the bill, arguing in effect that
same-sex couples should be allowed to marry. No word from the Archdiocese of
Boston. No word from the dioceses of Worcester, Fall River, and Springfield.
Roughly half of the voters in Massachusets are Catholic. But this bill
probably will never even come up for a vote. Do you wonder why?
