Today the Chairmen of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth, Bishop Richard J. Malone of Buffalo, New York, and the chairman of the USCCB’s Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage released a statement about the Supreme Court’s action.
Also, the Virginia Bishops together responded with their own statement. Virginia’s appeal was one of the many that the Court denied.
UPDATE: Archbishop Cordileone also released a statement on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit decision on October 7. He characterized the decision as “astonishingly dismissive” of the rights of children and the democratic process.
