Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, in a statement, called the
decision by U.S. District Court Judge John E. Jones III to strike down
Pennsylvania’s Defense of Marriage Act “a mistake with long-term,
negative consequences.”

They never seem to know what those consequences might be nor why they have not been demonstrated in Massachusetts. All we get is vague notions of how permitting a small segment of the society to marry will mysteriously cause the institution to go to ruin. One other thing that they never explain is why society should deny the benefits of marriage to children being raised by gay parents; a couple of million at last estimate.

Of course, Chaput doesn’t think that there should be gay parents of children in the first place. That ship sailed a very long time ago.

At the end of the day this is about imposing Catholic theology on everyone else. Chaput better get used to the idea of marriage equality because it is expanding and here to stay.
