DC has some GOOD Catholics too: Catholics United for Marriage Equality

Catholics United for Marriage Equality:
"We are Catholics who live or work in the District of Columbia. We are a diverse group of lay women and men, religious, and clergy. We represent parishes, religious institutions, and independent Catholic organizations in every ward in the District. We now join our voices to speak a faithful word for freedom and equality.

Our religious traditions and scriptures teach us that wherever love is present, God is also present. One of God's greatest gifts to us is our human capacity to love one another. The ability of two people to enter into relationships and form families of love and care is one expression of this gift. We therefore affirm the right of loving same-gender couples to enter into such relationships on an equal basis with loving heterosexual couples in civil marriage."

Not all Catholics are bad. Just the Bishops. The great majority of Catholics are Progressive and believe in helping others. Unlike the Bishops. Catholic Bishops continue to look more and more like the pharisees of Jesus' time every day. Now they are going to "punish" the homeless and poor of Washington DC if the City Council approves Marriage Equality--even though they would be exempt from performing any marriages they are against.

One more nail in the coffin. As the Bishops retreat further into their crazed ignorance, they push away the youth in the Catholic Church who understand what true Caritas means.

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
