  • Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, Video A Message in Defense of Marriage (2008)
    In this video, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, explains that "marriage is the exclusive union of one man and one woman, joined in an intimate community of love and life." He continues, "Marriage is not something we invent or change to suit our own purposes, it is a gift given to us, a blessing that originates in God, therefore we are not free to change it. Although civil and Church laws can regulate the practice of marriage, neither Church nor State can alter the basic meaning and structure of marriage."
