Cordileone and Santorum: Find New Ways to Defend Marriage

Mark Stricherz
Share

Speakers at March for Marriage discuss engaging a culture that is increasingly tolerant of gay unions.

 

But speakers at the March for Marriage betrayed no sign of giving up. "Jody’s been more wrong than right on a lot of things," Santorum said, breaking into a half smile.

Contacted by email, Bottum said in response, "Ah, Rick. I’ve always enjoyed his company, down the years we’ve known each other, but he does tend to get things a little backward, doesn’t he? The trouble is that Rick does politics as though it were a chance to showcase his Catholicism, and Catholicism as though it were a chance to showcase his politics."

Archbishop Cordileone too adopted a confident tone that traditional marriage has become a whipping boy. "Mozilla’s CEO was fired because he gave a political donation. If that isn’t intolerant, what is?" he asked.

Yet the archbishop and the former Pennsylvania senator differed on Pelosi’s exhortation to the archbishop that he not attend the march. To Cordileone, the issue is "best worked out in private."

Santorum said Pelosi’s words signaled a deeper ideological problem. "It just shows the intolerance of the left. They want to silence the opposition. They talk about diversity but they don’t practice it," Santorum said.

Mark Stricherz is Washington bureau chief for The Colorado Observer and author of Why the Democrats are Blue.
