Catholic Bishops Have The Virginia Sadz

The Virginia Catholic Conference has posted a joint statement from Arlington Bishop Paul Loverde (photo) and Richmond Bishop Francis DiLorenzo:
"Virginia voters put this provision in the Constitution, and no politician should be able to reverse the people's decision. We call on the Attorney General to do the job he was elected to perform, which is to defend the state laws he agrees with, as well as those state laws with which he personally disagrees. We will continue to defend marriage between a man and a woman, an institution whose original design predates all governments and religions. The Government of the Commonwealth of Virginia should preserve and defend this original design because the constituent majority that supported the constitutional amendment understands the unique benefit that marriage between a man and a woman provides to individual families and society at large."
