Catholic Quote of the Day — from Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone

“There is a problem here—an injustice, really—in the way that some people are so often identified by what they are against. Opposition to same-sex marriage is a natural consequence of what we are for, i.e., preserving the traditional, natural understanding of marriage in the culture and in the law.” (Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone) Print this entry
