Fr. Geoff in today's L.A. Times
I'm at our Diocesan Clergy Conference today but taking time to post us this link to the front page article in today's L.A. Times about Fr. Geoff Farrow ... the Roman Catholic priest standing up against Proposition 8. You'll want to read the whole piece here ... but here are two "take away" quotes:"
"How is marriage protected by intimidating gay and lesbian people into loveless and lonely lives?" he asked parishioners of the St. Paul Newman Center. "I am morally compelled to vote no on Proposition 8."
"I know these words of truth will cost me dearly," he said. "But to withhold them . . . I would become an accomplice to a moral evil that strips gay and lesbian people not only of their civil rights but of their human dignity as well."
