That is how I imagine the first phone call from the new Archbishop of San Francisco to Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) could begin.
WDTPRS kudos to San Francisco and to Archbp. Cordileone.
While I don’t think he will set off any earthquakes, I hope he will make himself heard in the manner his name suggests.
As my friend The Motley Monk reminds:
[Arch]bishop Cordileone is Chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage and assisted in writing Proposition 8, the November 2008 California ballot initiative banning same-sex marriage. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, he called “homosexual marriage” a plot by “the evil one” to destroy morality in the modern world, telling the Chronicle:
Only one idea of marriage can stand. If that’s going to be considered bigoted, we’re going to see our rights being taken away—as is already happening.
