Catholic Priests Organize Against Modern Marriage in MN

October 17, 2011

Gay Christian Flag

The Catholic Church is throwing it’s weight around Minnesota as it did in California to block modern marriage in the state.  Local Archbishop John Nienstedt has notified all the local priests to follow a pattern used in California– local church captains to take up the cause.  Of course, the captains are being organized by the public policy arm of the church, in conjunction with the bigoted Minnesota for Marriage and the National Organization for Marriage– an SPLC identified hate group.  The Catholics should be careful of the company they keep.  Who needs a Satan when you have NOM….  Perhaps the Archbishop could borrow Catholic Priest Rev Alejandro Jose Castillo from California…  to help organize the events.  Oh that’s right, Castillo (a key Prop 8 supporter) is in jail for having sex with a 12 year old boy!

Archbishop John Nienstedt sent a letter to every priest in the state at the start of October urging them to put every Catholic church in Minnesota to work passing a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

“It is imperative that we marshal our resources to educate the faithful about the Church’s teachings on these matters, and to vigorously organize and support a grass roots effort to get out the vote to support the passage of the amendment,” the letter read. It went out on Oct. 4 to every priest in the state.

The archbishop said it wants priests in every parish to identify a “church captain” in order to create an “ad hoc committee” in every church in the state. The “church captain” is a component of the Schubert Flint strategy used in 2008′s divisive Proposition 8 battle in California.

the church captains will be organized by the Minnesota Catholic Conference, the public policy arm of the Catholic church, which will in turn report to the Minnesota for Marriage coalition for statewide efforts. Minnesota for Marriage is made up of the Minnesota Family Council, MCC and the National Organization for Marriage.
