Catholic Church too Busy Protecting Pedophiles to Fight Gay Marriage

New York may be the next state to embrace marriage equality for gays and lesbians.

The state’s Roman Catholic bishops have been somewhat distracted, too, having focused their lobbying energies this session on defeating a bill that would extend the statute of limitations for victims of sexual abuse to bring civil claims, and have appeared unprepared for the battle over marriage.

Hey, there are only so many hours in the day.
