Catholic bishop decries Proposition 8 reversal by federal judge

A Chicago cardinal complains about a court decision.
Chicago Catholic Cardinal Francis E. George, who is also president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, denounced the Aug. 4 decision of a federal judge to overturn a California ban on same-sex marriage.

Cardinal George characterized marriage as the bedrock of society and the decision as a misuse of law to change the nature of marriage.

During 2008, the anti-gay initiative known as Proposition 8 was adopted by Golden State voters by a narrow margin. The decision by the federal judge overturns a decision by the California Supreme Court that defined marriage as between a man and a woman.
