WASHINGTON In recent legal briefs filed with the Supreme Court, the U.S. bishops warned that a redefinition of marriage would create an engine of conflict that threatens freedom of religion, speech and other liberties.
Marriage, understood as the union of one man and one woman, is not a historical relic, but a vital and foundational institution of civil society today, said the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in a Jan. 29 amicus brief supporting the California ballot initiative, Proposition 8.

You dont ever want a crisis to go to waste; its an opportunity to do important things that you would otherwise avoid.
