The B.C. Catholic has an article that details the U.S. bishops' reaction to President Barack Obama's support of same-sex marriage. Catholic News Service's Mark Pattison reports from Washington:
Catholic leaders rejected President Barack Obama's May 9 declaration in a television interview that "personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married."
