Quote of the Day

As a supporter of civil marriage equality, any statements I’ve made in the past about not recognizing homosexual relationships for one reason or another, of course it goes without saying that I no longer stand by these comments and I apologize for the insensitivity. Same-sex couples, whether they are married, in civil unions or domestic partnerships, ought to be recognized for what they are.

Just from his last name, we suspected Lou Marinelli was a fellow Catholic -- and that his transformation on this issue is mirroring what's happening in the hearts and minds of Catholics across the country. But after reading his testimonial, we're heartened that he focuses his support for marriage equality on his ability to rightfully reconcile the difference between civil marriage and holy matrimony!
