80 ex-priests prefer Obama to Catholic teaching on same-sex marriage

Ex-priests come out against MN marriage amendment | Minnesota Public Radio News:

"A group of 80 former Catholic priests on Thursday announced their opposition to the constitutional marriage amendment.

The November ballot measure would define marriage as between one man and one woman, and is strongly supported by the Catholic Church.

John Estrem, a former rector at the Cathedral of St. Paul who went on to head Catholic Charities, said the Church he knows is about love and inclusion.

"As a Catholic and former priest, I encourage all to vote no on this amendment," Estrem said. "Enshrining discrimination does not promote marriage. It simply diminishes us all.""
