R-74: ‘Devout’ Catholic wouldn’t act contrary to church teachings

Barbara Gorzinski’s Your Voice opinion (TNT, 7-17) was very misleading as to the teaching and position of the Catholic Church regarding Referendum 74 and same-sex marriage.

Her representation of being a “devout” Catholic was outright fraudulent. Pursuing and engaging in behavior that is contrary to moral teachings falls far short of that which is prescribed by the church. The fact that other so-called “Catholics” might agree with her is irrelevant as concerns church doctrine.

To learn the truth of Catholic thought and teaching on this matter, visit the website of the Archdiocese of Seattle website.
