Bishop Michael Jarrell on Marriage

 

In reacting to the  Obergefell v. Hodges (2015) decision in which a 5 to 4 Supreme Court majority imposed same sex marriage throughout the United States, Bishop Michael Jarrell of the Diocese of Lafayette, Louisiana gave forthright instructions to his faithful.  Bishop Jarrell enjoined his clergy from participation in same-sex “marriage” ceremonies, forbade the use of Catholic facilities or properties (e.g. churches, meeting halls, Catholic educational health or charitable institutions) from being used in a solemnization of same sex marriages.

This decision comes down during the fourth Fortnight for Freedom, a 14 day campaign by the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops to educate America about our fundamental first Constitutional right, the freedom of religion (not worship) and to defend religious liberty.

 

2015 Fortnight for Freedom

 

Alas, Catholics will need to take to heart the examples of St. Thomas More, St. John Fisher and the English Martyrs who suffered for adherence to their faith.

Lincoln was obliquely referring the the Dredd Scott (1857) decision regarding judicial activism, it could well be applied to several recent landmark decisions where the nine black robed justices legislated from the bench.
