Rock On, Archbishop Cordileone

Have had the honor of meeting and exchanging a few pleasantries with this fine man on a couple of occasions. Here, he defends marriage in a gracious, articulate and logical fashion.

Sample:

Q: What is the greatest threat posed by allowing gays and lesbians to marry?

A:The better question is: What is the great good in protecting the public understanding that to make a marriage you need a husband and a wife?

Key step: do not accept false premises.

(Of course, it’s USA Today, which, in its dedication to keeping America informed by means of pictures, and, when unavoidable, words, posted the Archbishop’s remarks above a link to the urgent news that Gwyneth Paltrow has acknowledged that it would have been better had she worn appropriate undergarments. The less generous might assert that this calls into question this newspaper’s grasp of what constitutes news, or even impugn the purity of its motivation.  But at least they did publish the interview.)

Enough with the smarty-pants Dante quote. Just some opinionated blogger dude.
