Support marginalized people, but not gay marriage?


In the Oct. 28 edition of The Catholic Messenger, Bishop Martin Amos is quoted as saying “While we’re not trying to force our beliefs on others, there are basic rights and duties we do need to bring forward concerning life, the poor and marginalized, the immigrant … to bring about a just society.”

I would like to ask Bishop Amos how he can profess support for the marginalized and at the same time advocate for political actions that, if enacted, would result in marginalizing gays and lesbians by denying them the right of civil marriage?
