Catholic Bishops: Please Pray And Fast That SCOTUS Rejects Gay Marriage

"For the first time in our nation’s history, the Supreme Court is considering two cases about whether ornot marriage should be redefined to include two persons of the same sex. These cases involve the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Proposition 8, both of which define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.The Court is expected to rule on both cases by the end of June. A broad negative ruling could redefine marriage in the law throughout the entire country, becoming the 'Roe v. Wade' of marriage.

"The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has joined with many other organizations in urging the Supreme Court to uphold both DOMA and Proposition 8 and thereby to recognize the essential, irreplaceable contribution that husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, make to society, and especially to children." - From the "pray and fast for life, marriage, and religious liberty" bulletin that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has ordered to be distributed at services.
