In the wake of three more American states voting for legalized same-sex marriage bringing the number of States in this country that do so to nine plus the District of Columbia, the Roman Catholic Church is not only standing fast, but becoming bigger jerks in opposing it:

In a front-page article in Saturday’s Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, the Holy See sought to frame itself as the lone voice of courage in opposing initiatives to give same-sex couples legal recognition. In a separate Vatican Radio editorial, the pope’s spokesman asked sarcastically why gay marriage proponents don’t now push for legal recognition for polygamous couples as well.

That’s right, they are not only opposing it, they are endorsing the Rick Santorum position of false equivalencies.

I guess you’d expect that from folks who are clearly experienced in marriage.
