USA, Michigan: Catholic Nun Pushes for Marriage Equality

Written by scott on September 16th, 2013

MichiganEven within the Catholic faith, there are many who believe that the Vatican stance on gays and marriage equality is wrong.

The Detroit Free Press reports:

“Sister Margaret Farley — a Catholic nun who graduated, taught and served as a board trustee at the University of Detroit-Mercy and is a retired Yale Divinity School professor — is not shutting up about supporting gay marriage and other positions that prompted the Vatican last year to censure the prominent theologian’s book on sexual ethics. “You just can’t back down and say, I apologize, because it would contradict one’s integrity,” Farley, 78, who became a Sister of Mercy through the order’s local congregation, told about 400 people gathered Friday at Mercy Center in Farmington Hills. “I didn’t decide never to talk again about the things that were problematic.”

Some of our closest friends are Catholic, and they’ve been very open about their support for marriage equality.
