Bishop Burbidge Calls for Respectful Dialogue in Video Interview


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.
