Calling him "just plain wrong," Bishop William Murphy has blasted Gov. David A. Paterson for ordering state agencies to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions.You tell 'em, Bishop.
In a column in The Long Island Catholic, Murphy suggested the governor was "subverting the democratic process" because he issued the order without consulting the state Senate or Assembly, or the public in general.
"Sexual intimacy between persons of the same sex does not pass muster," Murphy wrote in the newspaper of the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Homosexual relationships "do not serve the common good. They cannot do so because they contradict biological teleology and the natural law." - Newsday
