US bishops emphasize: Marriage is between a man and a woman

Catholic World News - June 30, 2010

The US bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee for the Defense of Marriage has launched “Marriage: Unique for a Reason,” an initiative that emphasizes that marriage is only between one man and one woman.

“The truth of marriage lies at the very core of a true concern for justice and the common good,” says Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, the committee’s chairman. “Promoting marriage is crucial to the New Evangelization. These initial materials seek to provide a key starting point, a compass, for assisting Catholics and all people of good will in understanding why marriage is and can only be the union of one man and one woman.”

The initiative is developing DVDs on sexual difference and complementarity, religious liberty, the good of children, and other related topics.
