Newman Society Statement on Supreme Court’s Marriage Ruling
Cardinal Newman Society President Patrick Reilly issued the following statement today, in light of the U.S. Supreme Court decision to extend the legal recognition of marriage beyond one man and one woman:
We want our members to rest assured: The Cardinal Newman Society is committed to Truth and to faithful Catholic education, and therefore we accept one true definition of marriage. No Supreme Court decision can change that.
Furthermore, we call on Catholic educators to stand firm in the truth, with the conviction of faith. No matter how difficult it gets to maintain Catholic schools and colleges in a hostile culture, Catholic education can never waver on the definition of marriage. Our young people need to hear the truth from their teachers, now more than ever. We will continue to promote and defend those faithful institutions that teach the truth, and we will expose any Catholic institution that denies it.
