MN Catholic Conference Calls Out Fake “Catholics for Equality” Group

Minnesota will vote on the definition of marriage in November 2012.

As a result, gay activists have been targeting religious communities in that state who oppose same-sex marriage and are trying to sow dissent there.

It’s not surprising that a group of people who believe they can simply redefine what marriage is also thinks they can simply redefine what it means to be Catholic.

At any rate, I applaud the Minnesota Catholic Conference and the Archdiocese of Saint Paul & Minneapolis for calling one of the worst-offending groups out:

The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and the Minnesota Catholic Conference issued a joint statement today explaining that a newly formed group calling itself “Catholics for Marriage Equality MN” has no recognition from nor affiliation with the Roman Catholic Church.

One of Catholics for Marriage Equality MN’s expressed aims is to defeat the Minnesota Marriage Protection Amendment that will appear on the November 2012 ballot, and which defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The group misleadingly tries to convince Catholics that they can, in good conscience, support a state redefinition of marriage without undermining marriage itself. The Catholic Church, in keeping with Catholic teaching, reason and natural law, and in concert with many other faiths, strongly supports maintaining the current, traditional definition of marriage by voting “yes” for the Amendment during the November 2012 election.

[Read the full statement here.]

I’ve written about the umbrella group behind this Minnesota chapter (“Catholics for Equality”) here and also made sure to point out when the Archdiocese of DC clarified that the group was founded “in opposition to Church teaching”. Abp. Broglio of the Archdiocese of the Military Services has also made clear that Catholics for Equality is a fake Catholic group.

Meanwhile, If you live in Minnesota, I urge you to join the Minnesota for Marriage campaign which is the main group dedicated to making sure marriage wins at the ballot box in 2012.

And on a related note, check-out the newly-launched Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance which is dedicated to protecting and defending individuals who have publicly spoken-out or acted in defense of traditional marriage. Catholics and other people of good will need to stick together and stand up for marriage!

Someone really needs to tell my uncle the 70-year-old priest that he's not really Catholic if he thinks marriage is just a word. Which it is. Matrimony is all Catholics should be concerned with, and I don't see anybody forcing us to redefine that.
