63 Former Priests Rebel Against Bishops in Support of WA Same-Sex Marriage Referendum - Catholic Bandita

The following excerpts are from my good friend Lisa Graas' blog, Catholic Bandita, I suggest you give her blog a read every day:
  • While state regulators in Washington have warned the Catholic Church not to do any fundraising to oppose a same-sex marriage referendum in that state (despite it being their Constitutional right), there appear to be no objections from the state against 63 former priests engaged in support for the measure. This is not to say that these priests should be warned by the state. To the contrary, they have just as much right to speak out as the bishops do. Whether it is moral for them to do so is another matter. In doing this, they set themselves up in the public square in opposition not just to the bishops, but to all of God’s holy people who remain obedient to His Church. For this, they will ultimately answer to God on the Day, according to His judgment of their duties, their intentions and of the impact of all this on the hearts of men.
  • Why are they “former priests?” Look at this.
  • The former priests are all married, and belong to three Seattle parishes.
