DC's Cardinal supports civil unions

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Wow. Almost missed this. Last week, after the Senate anti-gay vote, DC's Catholic Cardinal, Theodore McCarrick, was on CNN to voice his opposition to same-sex marriage. No surprise there. But, and this is a quite a but for a Catholic Cardinal, McCarrick said he supports civil unions:

He did say however that it's acceptable for the government to allow civil unions of gay and lesbian couples.

McCarrick said although it's not his ideal, the government needs to protect the rights of same-sex couples to care for each other or visit each other in a hospital. He said allowing civil unions would protect those rights.
The Vatican recently accepted McCarrick's resignation. No wonder. McCarrick actually has the same position as many pro-gay elected officials.

Thanks to CAG for the tip on this one.
