Rhoades: Indiana must uphold unique meaning of marriage

Statement from Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades, as distributed Thursday by the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend:

“Bishop Rhoades expressed his great disappointment on the decisions of the Supreme Court striking down part of the Defense of Marriage Act and refusing to uphold California’s Proposition 8. Under the Court’s ruling regarding DOMA, the federal government will now have to recognize so-called same-sex “marriage” in states that provide for it. Bishop Rhoades stated the importance of our ensuring that the state of Indiana continues to recognize and uphold the unique meaning of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The Bishop commented that the Church must continue and even redouble its efforts to teach and advocate the truth about marriage for the good of children and of society.”
