Bishop Murphy strongly corrects Catholic county official on same-sex ‘marriage’

The about-face on homosexual “marriage” accomplished by Thomas Suozzi, a Catholic who serves as the executive of Nassau County, New York, has drawn a strong rebuke from Bishop William Murphy. In his statement, the bishop spoke of the real meaning and a purpose of marriage “that homosexual relationships cannot fulfill.” Bishop William Murphy’s response came in reaction to Suozzi’s announcement in The New York Times that he “now supports gay marriage.” The Rockville Centre bishop reiterated Church teaching on the subject and called on all Catholics to adhere to this teaching. “The logic of Mr. Suozzi’s argument is difficult to discern,” Bishop Murphy said.
