If I can't marry my same-sex lover, neither can you!

One need only read about the on-going scandals of the Catholic Church in Ireland to gauge their moral authority on this matter. They protect pedophiles and rapists and then pontificate about gay marriage. Disgusting.

N.J. Catholic bishops instructing priests to read, distribute letter denouncing same-sex marriage

Religous and civic groups that oppose gay marriage and want to block it from passing in the legislature gather in front of the Statehouse on Oct. 25.

Catholic bishops in the state are instructing priests to read or distribute a letter this weekend asking Catholics to pray that lawmakers in New Jersey not allow same-sex marriage in New Jersey.

It remains unclear whether legislators will vote on the issue during the current lame-duck session. Gov. John Corzine favors same-sex marriage, but Gov.-elect Chris Christie opposes it, and supporters realize that unless it passes before Christie assumes office, prospects of passage in the foreseeable future would be bleak.

The bishops? letter restates Catholic teachings that marriage should be allowed only between a man and a woman. It says prayer is timely "because marriage faces challenges from a society more focused on individual satisfaction than on the Gospel.

"One of the most serious challenges," it continues, "is the current effort to pass Bills in the New Jersey legislature that would change the very definition of marriage as a union of one man and one woman in order to allow same-sex ?marriage.? We must not stand silent in the face of this serious challenge."

The letter also asks Catholics to "pledge their personal support" for family members, including those "who choose to remain single" -- a reference to gay people and heterosexual people, according to James Goodness, a spokesman for the Newark Archdiocese.

Not all public religious voices in the state are aligned against same-sex marriage. Last month, 18 clergy across the state, including Bishop Mark Beckwith of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark, asked lawmakers to allow same-sex marriage, in a letter-writing campaign coordinated by Garden State Equality, the advocacy group that favors same-sex marriage.
