1st Quarter 2012 - Quarterly Voice

"For the vast majority of Catholics, the social justice teachings of the church trump the conservative and institutional inertia of the Vatican and its hierarchy . . . Indeed, 63% of Catholics in this country support marriage equality, a rate that is 10% higher than that of the general public. Catholics will no more heed official Archdiocesan opposition to marriage equality than they do the church's head-in-the-sand proscription against birth control."

Leo N. Egashira, Publications Committee Chair
quoted in "Catholics and Marriage Equality"
