Sure Is Nice To See A Bishop With A Functioning Spine
What a nice change of pace

From CatholicCulture.org; Victory for traditional marriage in Maine
November 04, 2009

By a 53%-47% margin, Maine voters have repealed a measure that would have legalized homosexual marriage in the state-- even though, in the words of the Associated Press, “the stars seemed aligned for supporters of gay marriage. They had Maine’s governor, legislative leaders and major newspapers on their side, plus a huge edge in campaign funding.”

Bishop Richard Malone of Portland has been an active supporter of traditional marriage, ordering a collection in all parishes on behalf of the effort. The shepherd of the state’s sole diocese noted in a recent referendum alert:

Please let your conscience be formed by these clear and authoritative words of Pope Benedict XVI (Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger): “In those situations where homosexual unions … have been given the legal status and rights belonging to marriage, clear and emphatic opposition is a duty.” A Catholic whose conscience has been properly formed by Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church cannot support same sex marriage. Please vote YES on question 1.

Sorry that this is off-subject. Cavey, I miss the old format of the Cave even if my favorite web browser, Firefox, screwed up the presentation. I can live with the problem by using "ctrl a" to read the posts if you decide to restore your old format. After all, the old format was part of the "car crash" style of the Cave.

Just a thought.

Dear Sucks,
No, I really don't give a shit about your opinion. The fact that your such a pathetic wretch who finds it needed to name his/her's/it's blog "Catholics Suck" tells me all I need to know about your dumb ass.

Anyhoo, speaking of sucking, you sound like a man who speaks from experience. Possibly a skill your mother taught you? But hey, I'm just going off what she told me last night.

Also, don't bother replying. Any comments you make will be unread, unopened, and automatically deleted.

Have a happy Marine Corps day.
