"Scandalously, our legal system no longer protects significant minorities: unborn children, Catholics and their institutions who would like to continue to enjoy the freedom we used to take for granted; those who continue to hold what the common sense of the human race has always held: marriage is based on the sexual union of a man and woman, an opinion we’ve now been told is no longer that of the majority and therefore need not be respected or protected in law."
So said Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, in his homily of September 30, at the annual Red Mass for the legal profession. Read the whole homily at Catholic New World.
