"Because 'same-sex marriages' are clearly contrary to God's plan for the human family, and therefore objectively sinful, Catholics should examine their consciences very carefully before deciding whether or not to endorse same-sex relationships or attend same-sex ceremonies, realizing that to do so might harm their relationship with God and cause significant scandal to others."

-- Rhode Island Bishop Thomas Tobin after the state became the 10th to legalize same-sex marriages yesterday. I'm always amazed at the depths these "holy men" will stoop to just to avoid recognizing loving relationships.
