We’ve seen the disruption to couples and families throughout the U.S. when courts have first allowed same-sex marriage only to have those marriages subsequently called into question by another court. I anticipate the U.S. Supreme Court will give finality to this issue in their next term.
Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen • In a statement following a court ruling that allowed same-sex marriages to take place in the state. Van Hollen, by the way, was one of the people causing the “disruption,” asking for an emergency order to stop the weddings.

Good news: In what may be his last high-profile move as Newark’s mayor, Senator-elect Cory Booker (D-NJ) married a number of couples in the city early this morning, as same-sex marriages are now legal in the state.
Bad news: When asked if there were any objections to the union, a protester loudly shouted, “This is unlawful in the eyes of God and Jesus Christ.”
Better news: The protester was escorted out and the marriages went along as planned. (photo by John Munson/The Star-Ledger)

It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time. The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent. The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently.
