Washington State Catholic Bishops Take Campaign for Marriage to Prayer and Pulpit



The Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle website is topped by three videos of Archbishop J. Peter Sartain arguing against same-sex marriage,  but a newly posted “Prayer in Defense of Marriage” seems to carry a similar anti-Referendum 74 message.  A passage:

“May your Holy Spirit enlighten our society to treasure the heroic love of husband and wife, and guide our leaders to sustain and protect the singular place of mothers and fathers in the lives of their children.”

... After a fiery pastoral letter last month from Bishop Joseph Tyson, the Diocese of Yakima website currently carries the headline:  “Why a good person can vote against same-sex marriage.”
