San Diego County Clerk Gregory Smith’s recent statement that he might allow clerks to decline processing homosexual marriages for reasons of conscience has angered San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom....He claims to be Catholic yet he supports sexual perversion and sodomy? What about his "very strong religious beliefs?" What religion is this he is talking about?
“I’ve got very strong religious beliefs,” said Newsom, who says he is Catholic. “So now, all of a sudden, I don't have to do certain things, even though that's my responsibility as mayor?" He said, "if you don't want to provide a marriage certificate and you've got a job that does that, then you should think twice about why you got the job in the first place and maybe you should get a new job. Talk about a slippery slope, Mr. County Clerk down in San Diego....."
Again, where is the bishop in addressing this matter of a wayward public official who professes to be Catholic?
And, of course like far too many "Catholic" politicians, they bring scandal and ridicule to the Church.
