Priest Rubuked For "Gay Marriage"

A Catholic priest in Connecticut is rebuked for having a role in his cousin's so-called "same sex wedding."  The rebuke will be on the priest's record permenently.  Rev. Michael DeVito, of Sacred Heart Church in Suffield read at the 'wedding' and wore a roman collar.  This has upset many Catholics as well as the Archbishop of Hartford, Connecticut.  

Archbishop Mansell of Hartford said that his presence gave an implicit Catholic Church-support for so-called "gay marriage."  Reverend DeVito has stated that he will not participate in any such events again.
 

What was Father DeVito thinking?  As a Catholic priest he represents Christ and His Church.  He cannot participate in ceremonies that mock the Sacrament of Marriage.
