    • Michigan Bishops Statement on Same-Sex Marriage Ruling
      Here are two main points from the Bishops Statement. 
      A link to the entire document is below.

      Upholding the distinction/definition of marriage and respect for the dignity of all persons are not opposed. These two values are compatible and promote the common good. Unconditional love and acceptance of all is at the very heart of our Catholic faith. So too is our witness to the truth that marriage is between one man and one woman, which is the foundation for the flourishing of society.

      Children are at the very heart of marriage. The "supreme gift" of marriage, a child, comes precisely through the mutual, loving self-gift exchanged between husband and wife. It is only because of their sexual difference that spouses are able to cooperate with God in the awesome adventure of welcoming a child into the world. Marriage is a pro-child institution. Notwithstanding difficult situations or well-meaning intentions or social research that might suggest otherwise, the dignity of the child and right of every child to a mother and a father should not be ignored.
