Why don't they just come out and say what they really mean?

They want uppity women to remember their place -- mutely following the guys in the dresses and purple hats. The purpose of the Catholic Church's opposition to gay rights and marriage equality is to shore up the crumbling pillars of male domination over women. Here's San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone bemoaning the Minnesota state decision to legalize same sex marriages.
"It is the height of irony that the Minnesota legislature decided, and the governor signed into law, the redefinition of marriage just after we celebrated the unique gifts of mothers and women on Mother's Day," he said in a statement the bishops' conference released Wednesday.
The further we go toward recognizing that human societies make choices about how we organize ourselves, and that we can expand those choices to allow greater human possibility and dignity for more of us, the harder it becomes to insist on traditional patriarchy. Too bad, guys.
