Bishop Tobin Defends Marriage: Gay Activists Fight Religious Exemptions Comments

'Can there be any doubt that Almighty God will, in His own time and way, pass judgment upon our state, its leaders and citizens, for abandoning His commands and embracing public immorality? I encourage Catholics to pray for God's patience, mercy and forgiveness in these distressing times' (Bishop Thomas J. Tobin) Continue Reading

    Rob - perfect comment. How can we expect others to recognize the beauty of God in marriage when we do not live our married lives in a way that shows His presence? If we want marriage to be a sign of God's love, then we need to keep Him in our marriages and live according to His will.

    Unfortunately vance, a vast number of Catholics support this. This is one where protesting isn't going to do it. We have to lead by example in marriage and sadly we are not.

    Good for Bishop Tobin. A marriage is a sacrament and creates a husband and wife.
    A civil union just creates a civil union and is not a sacrament.

    Bishop Tobin is a hero. It's time that all Catholics stand up for their faith and show the public their feelings the same way the Tea Party Movement did. Praying in the shadows is not going to make. God helps those who help themselves. It's long over-due for Catholics and Protestants to take to the streets and carry signs to defend Christ and his church against this anti-Christ assault against our God and our Church.
