Mayor of San Francisco Gavin Newsom to campaign against Prop. 8
San Francisco, Sep 6, 2008 / 08:04 am (CNA).- Gavin Newsom, Mayor of San Francisco and a self-described Catholic, will join a political campaign against Proposition 8, a California initiative that both would overturn the May 15 California Supreme Court decision mandating same-sex marriage and would reinstate marriage between only a man and a woman.
Newsom will help launch the No on 8 Equality for All Campaign today at the old Tower Records building in San Francisco, the California Catholic Daily reports.
In 2004, Newsom provoked a constitutional crisis in the state by granting marriage licenses to 4,000 same-sex couples in a case that led to the 2008 California Supreme Court ruling. In 2006 he cancelled a trip to Rome for the installation of former San Francisco Archbishop William Levada as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, for the stated reason that he was protesting the Churchs opposition to homosexuals adoption of children.

Self described Catholic?
Ex-Communicate his sorry a$$ with the utmost prejudice. If it hasn’t already been done.
ALL liberal politicians from California are Sleazey!!!!!
Barbara the Boxer, Dianne Frankenstein, and of course, the Holy of Holies, Nancy Pelosi!!!
This freak-pandering, lawless commie should have been put in jail back when he first started breaking laws. Another radical leftist who cares not about the will of the people, or the laws they vote in, only pandering to the freaks and perverts he considers more important than the normal citizens of California.
And this anal orifice wants to run for governor of California? LMFAO.
By being so aggressive, California doomed gay marriage in the state.
Even in San Fran, the support for gay marriage is evenly split. This is a losing battle for gays.
And he was the comparatively conservative mayoral candidate.
I think that it was Matt Gonzales that called Newsom a Republican, because he couldn’t think of anything worse to call him.
Anyone know how this one is polling?
“Gavin Newsom, Mayor of San Francisco and a self-described Catholic”
Has he been kicked out of the Catholic church yet?
