Bishop of Fargo for marriage

Bishop Sam Aquila of Fargo, North Dakota, is ordering his priests to preach on the sanctity of marriage. He’s also allowing petition-holders to gather signatures in churches for a state constitutional amendment.

“All Catholics have a moral obligation to defend marriage and oppose efforts to legalize same-sex unions as equivalent to marriage,” he wrote. “I want you through your parishioners to obtain signatures in your parish or parishes for this initiative. I also ask that you preach on this matter during the next month in your parishes and present clearly the teaching of the Church to our people.&88221;

Good to see another bishop taking a strong stand on this. I wonder if his diocese’s tax-exempt status will be threatened.
