Catholic Church welcomes
US Supreme Court Rulings on
DOMA and Prop 8
The Office of the Presiding Bishop for
the Evangelical Catholic Church is releasing a statement by
Presiding Bishop James Wilkowski regarding today’s US Supreme Court
ruling on DOMA and Prop 8.
William R. Morton
Director of Media and Communication
As our national family continues to
travel the road towards unconditional equality and civil rights for
all Americans, the Supreme Court of the United States has helped
this journey to take a significant step forward.
In its ruling against DOMA and California’s Prop 8, the Supreme
Court has rejected actions of overt political and social bigotry and
discrimination aimed at denying gender-common couples the rights and
dignity of marriage.
On behalf of the Evangelical Catholic Church, I congratulate the
work of the Court.
