Catholic clergy attack marriage

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | May 06, 2003

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?
