Maryland Catholic Churches Organize To Repeal Marriage Equality Law

The Archdiocese of Baltimore, Maryland is asking Catholic churches to read a letter asking members to take part in an effort to repeal the state’s marriage-equality law and add their names to a petition to place the referendum on the November ballot. The union of one man and one woman “has been recognized by government and religion alike because of its unique capactiy to engender life, and to establish our society’s most basic family unit of mother, father and child,” the letter says. “When Marylanders are asked to decided this issue in November, we fully expect that they they, too, will vote to uphold this unchanging truth about marriage.”
