Gay Marriage Update
Kristen, at The Fray, has two different
posts on what's going on with gay marriage. Here's an interesting tidbit:
Two of Massachusetts' Catholic lawmakers are coming out in support of gay marriage, according to this Boston Globe report.
Representative Marie P. St. Fleur and Senator Marian Walsh, said yesterday their religious faith had inspired them to support same-sex marriage, despite pronouncements from Pope John Paul II and Archbishop Sean P. O'Malley declaring that such marriages are incompatible with Catholic teachings.
It's pretty easy to bump into a Catholic lawmaker on Beacon Hill, but not many cite their faith as a reason to support gay marriage.
I've heard Peter Kocot say things along those lines, and it is one of the reasons I admire him.
