Bishop Cordileone named US bishops’ point man on same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - January 06, 2011

Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has named Bishop Salvatore Cordileone of Oakland chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee for the Defense of Marriage. A particularly active defender of Catholic teaching on marriage, Bishop Cordileone has been recognized as a leading force behind the 2008 passage of Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that recognized marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

Bishop Cordileone succeeds Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, who was elected vice chairman of the bishops’ conference.
