New York Archbishop blasts proposal for same-sex marriage

Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York has staked out his opposition to an effort to legalize same-sex marriage in the state, describing the legislative proposal as “a rush to tamper with a definition as old as human reason.”

In a strongly worded statement, Archbishop Dolan decried the “perilous presumption of the state to re-invent the very definition of an undeniable truth” about marriage. The archbishop observed that in countries such as China or North Korea, “government presumes daily to ‘redefine’ rights, relationships, values, and natural law.” He added: “But please, not here!”

“This is not about denying rights,” the archbishop said. “It is about upholding a truth about the human condition.”
