Board ruling on same-sex unions stunts religious freedom, says Washington archdiocese

February 09, 2010

The Archdiocese of Washington, DC, has criticized a decision by the city's Board of Elections, barring a voter referendum on legal recognition of same-sex marriage. The Board ruled that a referendum-- organized to overturn the City Council's decision to allow for same-sex marriage-- could have the intent of violating the human rights of some residents.

Pronouncing that decision "extremely disappointing," the Washington archdiocese noted that the Board had "found a right for same-sex couples to marry by ignoring the right to religious liberty."
