San Francisco Archbishop Defends Decision to Join D.C. Rally Against Gay Marriage

David Gibson of Religion News Service reports on San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone and his choice to march in Thursday’s March for Marriage in Washington. The march is sponsored by a variety of anti-gay marriage organizations, including the National Organization for Marriage and the Family Research Council, and it includes Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum as featured speakers. According to Archbishop Cordileone, however, the march is not anti-LGBT. He wrote, “Rest assured that if the point of this event were to single out a group of individuals and target them for hatred, I most certainly would not be there.”
