the archbishop speaks

San Francisco Archbishop George H. Niederauer has been pretty much silent on his involvement in Proposition 8, but in a letter posted on the SF Archdiocese’s Web site, he confirms he’s the one who encouraged the Mormons to get as involved as they did in the Yes on 8 campaign. You can read it here, but be prepared.

Here’s one passage I found interesting:

Whatever others may say, the proponents of Proposition 8 supported it as a defense of the traditional understanding and definition of marriage, not as an attack on any group, or as an attempt to deprive others of their civil rights. 

The Archbishop can say this as many times as he likes, but just denying the civil rights argument doesn’t make it go away. But then again denial seems to be an ongoing problem for his Excellency.
