Illinois Catholic Conference Launches ‘Defense Of Marriage’ Department « The Brandt Standard

Via Katherine Brandt, Illinois Catholic Conference Launches ‘Defense Of Marriage’ Department « The Brandt Standard:
As the Windy City Times reported Wednesday, the Catholic Conference of Illinois (CCI) recently announced the formation of a Defense of Marriage department, which will fight any attempts to legalize same-sex marriage in the state and work to protect the “stature of the nuclear family – which provides love, stability and confidence to children, as well as organization to society.”

In a news release, the CCI acknowledged that the Defense of Marriage department would be fighting “an uphill battle against current societal trends,” and that the “teachings of the Church are not overwhelmingly popular everywhere.”
Delicensing Catholic Charities didn't advance the cause of Same Sex Marriage. It was a foolish move by advocates and looks totally vindicative and thin skinned. Sorry Katherine, your friends will regret this.
