Local, national Catholics to ramp up language war on same-sex marriage


At its June meeting last week, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops announced it was ramping up a campaign against same-sex marriage. Bishop Salvatore J. Cordileone of the Subcommittee for the Defense of Marriage said the Roman Catholic church would push back in the war of “language” which he said same-sex marriage proponents were winning with words like “hate” and”equality” The church is planning a video campaign in both English and Spanish, and its efforts have already been felt in states like Minnesota where the church was successful in getting an anti-gay marriage amendment on the ballot.

The Minnesota state house was taken over by republicans in the 2010 election in a Tea Party deluge. The Catholic Church had nothing to do with it. They were just preaching to the choir.
