There are times in a game of football when it is clear the quarterback must step back and kick the ball in order to secure another chance to win the game. Alas, Catholic archbishops still have not got the point– most Americans have accepted the concept of gay and lesbian marriage. Two Catholic archbishops, one archbishop of the military, sent a message to the Defense Department which expressed their opposition to providing benefits to same sex couples. According to Archbishop Timothy Brogloio, it “undermines marriage as the union of one man and one woman because it treats two persons of the same sex as spouses.”
OK, the hierarchy of the Catholic Church opposes same sex marriage. Reality is that states are now allowing it, the military is now allowing it, so what to do? Perhaps, it is time for the Catholic church to realize -punt. Who knows, perhaps there is another set of downs.
