Is San Francisco at war on the Vatican?

The battle between the City of San Francisco and The Catholic Church is on its way to the Supreme Court of the United States.

In This Corner, The City of San Francisco...

In March of 2006, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in favor of a resolution officially condemning the teachings of the Catholic Church in regards to the hard stance Catholicism has taken against participants in a homosexual relationship from adopting children.

The resolution refers to the Vatican as a foreign nation that is meddling in San Francisco's "established customs and traditions such as the right of same-sex couples to adopt..."

The Board further went on to state that the teachings of the Catholic Church are "insulting to all San Franciscans," "hateful," "insulting and callous," "defamatory," "absolutely unacceptable," "insensitive" and "ignorant."

In what many see as the most egregious point of the resolution was the calling upon of the Archbishop of San Francisco and Catholic Charities to defy church teachings and beliefs.

Those who are in sin seek affirmation and a precedent to "rubber stamp" their evil passions - as if these things would actually redefine the evils as good and make them "holy" in God's eyes.
Lord, Jesus Christ, that they may see.
Ora pro nobis. Go with God.

I think you've posted about Holy Redeemer parish before.

Have you seen the Paulists at SF's old cathedral?
They are a very "welcoming" group.
Although I notice they do not embrace Traditionalist Catholics.

With the dissent in the pulpit, any wonder the city feels free to attack the Church?
