It would be better if the church used this energy and money rounding up the clergy that has and continues to abuse children. Christianity is on the decline and will be obsolete in another couple generations. After all religion is nothing more than the transformation of myth over time.

Reading this article just proves to me what the Catholic Church and possibly other demoninations are trying to do...They want their cake in eat it too. I so happy to NOT be Catholic or Christian anymore, it way to hypocrytal. They want to pick and choose whatever passages they want to be relavent for the times. I find it ridiculous that the Caltholic church want to tell us who we can marry when they cant event get married...what do they know of relationships? What do they know of marriage? What do they know of the real world. Their own oppression is so evident in all the abuses of children and others... So wake up, we gay folk are NOT going anywhere, You go ahead, we dont need to be married in your church. We can go to another church that DOES except us or go to the court house. you have no right to push your beleifs on the rest of the world.

From the article: "The election is a symptom of a much larger problem," Cordileone said. "Most people don't understand what marriage is."-------Really? I guess you think Catholic bishops are the only ones who understand what marriage is. Kind of ironic, since they are forbidden to get married. Maybe you need enough Christian humility to finally realize that you don't own the word "marriage".

I completely agree with jgmancini. I guess the bishops have no concept of what a civil marriage is. It is a legal agreement at its very basic definition. You can go ahead and define marriage how your pope wants, but keep it in your own church. Other faiths define it differently than you do too.
