06/28/13

The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge has called for respectful dialogue in the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions handed down June 26, 2013, on cases dealing with same-sex marriage. Bishop Burbidge called the Court’s decision, which ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, a “grave disappointment.” But he said it offers individuals on both sides of this emotional issue the opportunity to discuss the subject in a meaningful way since it is an issue that will be open to further debate and discussion.
