I thoroughly disagree (with Rubio’s opposition to gay marriage), being raised in a Catholic family, raising a Catholic family, mainstream Catholic – well, the Baltimore catechism, to get back to our hometown of Baltimore, was what we were raised on. And I think that this statement by Senator Rubio is most unfortunate. It’s a polarizing statement. The fact is, is that what we’re taught was to respect people in our faith and to say that this endangers mainstream Christian thinking is so completely wrong....If we're honest, doesn't Pelosi sound more like the mainstream Catholic today?
And, again, it’s polarizing and I would hope that – perhaps he believes what he says, and I assume that he does – but I hope that we can persuade him differently because the country is going in a completely different direction now. And it’s very, very exciting.
At another blog talking about this, someone had this blunt but hard-hitting observation: "Maybe Jason has discovered that the modernist/postmodernist Roman Church can't be defended. A church that believes everything is rather pointless, no?"
