Archbishop Nienstedt calls for marriage-amendment committee in every parish
CWN - October 20, 2011
Archbishop John Nienstedt of St. Paul and Minneapolis has asked every pastor in the archdiocese to form a committee to garner support for the state marriage amendment that will appear on the ballot in November 2012.
“It is imperative that we marshal our resources to educate the faithful about the Church’s teachings on these matters, and to vigorously organize and support a grass roots effort to get out the vote to support the passage of the amendment,” he said as he asked priests to appoint a committee captain. “This person needs to be committed, energetic, and dedicated.”

Bravo, Archbishop. Too bad Archbishop Dolan in NY didn't do this, which no doubt would have had a good ending here instead of the dreadful ending that transpired and will continue to transpire. Surely he knew he could have done this and had a different ending - why, oh why, Dear Archbishop, didn't you????? You better develop a combattive spirit since you are dealing with the devil in these battles.
