Pope mandating politics against gay marriage who is jennifer tisdale dating
The two-page letter was followed by a three-page analysis from the USCCB’s legal staff that charges the administration with “hostility” to traditional marriage and a “new, more aggressive position” on behalf of gay marriage.In especially strong language, it also argues that the administration treats millions of Americans who oppose gay marriage “as if they were bigots.” The tenor of the bishops’ warning appears to signal an escalation in their battle against gay marriage, as well as a hardening of their opposition to Obama just as the 2012 presidential campaign gets underway.In place of any changes to church doctrine on sexuality, the Pope’s report says that gay people should receive “assistance” to bring them back to normality, and affirms there are “absolutely no grounds” for considering recognition of “homosexual unions”.
May love endure and flourish wherever it is to be found."The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops said: "The unique meaning of marriage as the union of one man and one woman is inscribed in our bodies as male and female.
Elsewhere, he rallied against “pressure” from outside influences calling for an end to homophobia.
He added: “It is unacceptable that local Churches should be subjected to pressure in this matter and that international bodies should make financial aid to poor countries dependent on the introduction of laws to establish ‘marriage’ between persons of the same sex.” Though aid money is often curtailed in countries where gays are persecuted, jailed and subject to human rights abuses, the document references no proof whatsoever for the extraordinary claim that aid has been cut off over lack of same-sex marriage.
The bishops’ new hard line was welcomed by conservatives, and it comes as Obama is facing record-low opinion ratings.
The bishops’ stance carries risks, however, as voters appear to be focused on the state of the economy more than gay marriage.
