“It is obvious that from the Holy Father’s clear and repeated teaching on the moral inadmissibility of same-sex marriage, he is not drawing a moral equivalence between same-sex marriage and civil unions.  In light of the received teaching of the Church on the morally problematic nature of civil unions, I look forward to further clarification from the Holy See.”  

Most Reverend Robert J. McManus
Bishop of Worcester
