So Mr. Brayton agrees with the HRC that the Catholic faith--at least on the issue of marriage and family--is "shameful" and "ugly" and "serves absolutely no higher purpose."
Our zones of tolerance just don't overlap.

Denying children a loving and stable home serves absolutely no higher purpose, said Solmonese. These bishops are putting an ugly political agenda before the needs of very vulnerable children. Every one of the nations leading childrens welfare groups agrees that a parents sexual orientation is irrelevant to his or her ability to raise a child. What these bishops are doing is shameful, wrong and has nothing to do whatsoever with faith.
I agree with all of that except the last part. The Bishops are acting consistent with their faith, and to that extent I respect their decision. But that doesn't make the rest of the statement untrue.
