Cardinal Mahony, please remind everyone publicly that Matrimony is a Sacrament, institued by Jesus Himself

The liberals should stop exulting and congratulating themselves about the Calif. supreme court's 4-3 ruling on May 15 that Prop. 22 is unconstitutional.

They should pause to reflect that it is not good to defy Almighty God and His Scripture, His Catholic Church, and His holy and grace-filled Sacraments.

How come no one anywhere, our cardinals and bishops included, is saying that it is blasphemous for anyone to act as if liaisons based on the mortal sin of sodomy are the same as the divinely instituted, holy Sacrament of Matrimony?

Cardinal Mahony: Frankly, no one in the general public knows of, let alone reads, follows, and talks about, the websites of the California Catholic Conference and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and our other Calif. dioceses.

So just posting a statement on those websites does not tell the general public, including most of our fellow Catholics, how Holy Mother Church stands on this blasphemous court ruling or even that She cares about it.

Nor will a statement in The Tidings, next issue, inform the general public or, indeed, most of our fellow Catholics.

You can and must do more.

Your Eminence, you need to hold a press conference to give your flock and the general public the divinely ordained Catholic teaching on marriage and family, to publicly oppose this heinous and tyrannical court ruling, and to announce that you firmly back this year's pro-marriage ballot initiative.

You should also lead marches and rallies in defense of marriage and family and against the powerful and well-funded homosexual movement and its agenda for taking over our country and oppressing our Faith and our faithful.

You hold press conferences, lead marches and even testify befor government bodies about other issues. You certainly can, and should, do the same now for marriage and family, for Catholic teaching, and for God and His rights.

Please pray about this and do these things! Thank you in advance...

(An aside: 4,618,673 Californians, 61% of the toal, voted for Prop. 22. That was in 2000.)

Amen Q, Amen! I'm sorry I haven't had the time to comment on this issue.

What is needed is a public teaching momemnt by Mahony. Let us pray that it happens SOON!...The gates of hell are paved with skulls of bishops...

Now would be a good time for the Cardinal to teach, The Pope just came to the US and he said that he was a different disciple of Jesus Christ, now's a great opportunity for him to show it.

I'm not convinced that Mahony even disagrees with what the Supreme Court did.

At any rate, the silence is deafening.

Dear Joe of St. Therese,

Thanks for writing! Yes, the Cardinal ought to be teaching us all. Archbishop Vigneron has spoken out, up in Oakland.

Dear Karen,

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Cardinal would defend his flock!
