Happy Easter from Cardinal Dolan of New York! The good cardinal today on ABC said that gay people are entitled to "friendship", but not marriage:
Asked about gay marriage in a week when the US supreme court heard two cases regarding same sex marriage, the archbishop of New York told ABC's This Week: "We want your happiness. You are entitled to friendship. But we also know that God has told us that the way to happiness, that – especially when it comes to sexual love – that is intended only for a man and woman in marriage, where children can come about naturally."So once again, we are told that the main (only?) purpose of marriage is to have kids.
The cardinal wants all those gays in his church, but sees no problem with his message:
We try our darndest to make sure we're not anti-anybody. We're in the defense of what God has taught us about – about marriage. And it's one man, one woman, forever, to bring about new life," he said.Pretty clueless, if you ask me.
