Bishop Barron, Pro-Gay Marriage?!?

Bishop Robert Barron is a favorite of many Catholics. His series on the Catholic Church inspired many and educated many on the faith. However, a recent interview he was featured on is raising many eyebrows. Bishop Barron was interviewed by Dave Rubin from "The Rubin Report."

Rubin is a homosexual who is in a homosexual union. During the interview, Rubin asked the bishop if he would overturn so-called "Same-Sex Marriage." The bishop replied that he would leave it alone. In other words, he would not fight against it. This goes against the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith which said in 2003, 

"In those situations where homosexual unions have been legally recognized or have been given the legal status and rights belonging to marriage, clear and emphatic opposition is a duty. One must refrain from any kind of formal cooperation in the enactment or application of such gravely unjust laws and, as far as possible, from material cooperation on the level of their application. In this area, everyone can exercise the right to conscientious objection."

The bishop is trying to play it safe by catering to both sides of the aisle. This is wrong. Even atheists loved his response. Brandon Vogt of Strange Notions sees the replies from atheists as good, but we must see that they are getting the wrong impression. These atheists interpret the bishop's words as a change in Catholicism. It is scandalous. Former gay man, Joseph Sciambra criticized the bishop on his own Facebook and claims that a comment he posted on the bishop's fan page was deleted.

Here are the Facebook Posts:

Bishop Barron obviously got many messages from angry Catholics which forced him to post on Facebook that he is against so-called Same-Sex Marriage. However, he failed to take back his comment that he would not press the issue in regards to the law allowing this perverted marriage.  We must continue to fight against this evil.  St. Paul tells us of "fighting the good fight," not sitting back and letting things be.
