Excellent Archbishop's letter on opposing Gay 'Marriage'

Archbishop Mario Conti has issued a letter pledging that the Catholic Church will campaign actively against proposals to distort the meaning of the word marriage to include homosexual relationships. Among other things, he writes:

... a mandate to govern does not include a mandate to reconstruct society on ideological grounds, nor to undermine the very institution which, from the beginning, has been universally acknowledged as of the natural order and the bedrock of society, namely marriage and the family. In terms of law, its support and defence have been on a par with the defence of life itself. We weaken it at our peril.
