What to make of the NJ bishops’ silence on same-sex marriage in their state? Rocco’s twitter feed suggests they’re laying low because of cover-up scandals. It’s not illogical to think so.
Reader know I’m more of the mind of bolstering and supporting sacramental marriages and I think the Church’s efforts against same-sex unions are not a good use of time, money, energy, and/or personal capital.
But still. If a person really wants to make the case politically, I wouldn’t want the discussion to be stifled because of scandal. I suspect that bishops speaking out at this time would be counterproductive to their cause. Interesting that all the Garden State bishops thought so.
