EWTN.com - Minnesota Catholic Leaders Say 'Gay Marriage' Group Is Misleading: "A self-described Catholic group advocating "marriage equality" in Minnesota is misleading Catholics and others about the nature of marriage and is not recognized by the Church, according to church leaders in the state.
The group Catholics for Marriage Equality MN "seeks to confuse Catholics and the public about authentic Church teaching related to matters of marriage and sexuality," the Minnesota Catholic Conference and the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis said on Sept. 29.
Both the conference and the archdiocese made it known that this group "does not speak for the Catholic Church" and has "no authority" to determine what does and does not constitute Christian doctrine and morality.
"The Archdiocese asks that Catholics avoid associating themselves with this group, and not be deceived by its messages, which are in conflict with the fundamental teachings of the Church," the statement said.
The group proposes a false view of the Church that undermines the legitimate authority of the bishops and the Magisterium as the interpreter and teacher of the faith given to the apostles by Jesus Christ."
