Discussing the push for same-sex "marriage," Archbishop Thomas G. Wenski of Miami told judges and lawyers at the city's 2013 Red Mass that freedom and law must be based on reality and objective truth. Catholic News Agency reports:

"When a democracy bases itself on moral relativism and when it considers every ethical principle or value to be negotiable ... it is already, and in spite of its formal rules, on its way to totalitarianism," Archbishop Wenski preached during his homily on April 24. "The might of right quickly becomes might makes right."

Archbishop Wenski opened his homily by quoting Abraham Lincoln, who noted that even "if you call a tail a leg," a cow still has only four legs, "because calling a tail a leg doesn't make it one."
