Neat post from MPR that talks about various priests in Minnesota speaking out against the marriage amendment. With over 1,000 years of service to the Catholic Church, the article captures thoughts and a couple good quotes from these retired priests. Additionally, MPR has reposted a letter that was submitted to the Star Tribune by Fr. John F. Brandes, Fr. Thomas J. Garvey and Fr. J. Timothy Power. The letter concludes with:
We write now to say that there is not just one way for Catholics tovote in November. We ask you to consider voting “No” this November on the Marriage Amendment. We feel that our church is stronger when both sides of an issue are part of the public dialogue. Thank you for your consideration.
Progress. It may be slow, but every day, we move forward bit by bit.
