"Proponents often argue that ENDA and similar laws at the state and local levels are focused exclusively on workplace issues, but a large body of evidence suggests that such legislation would also be viewed as, and in many cases expressly intended to be, a significant step toward redefining marriage to include homosexual unions."

-- Rightwing fundie "think"tank, The Heritage Foundation, in a breathless report from late 2009. Go ahead, visit and laugh, but these are the talking points that are beating our truths in Congress currently.

Unfortunately our Catholic Bishops have used the same arguments in a letter to congress. Catholic Groups including Fortunate Families and New Ways Ministry are doing what we can to counter this message. We believe that as Catholics in the pews our Bishops don't understand or speak for us on this issue. They have isolated themselves from stories about our families. My blog includes the letter the bishops sent Congress and Fortunate Families response.
