” one is free to have an opinion but one is not free to be incoherent”
This blog is delighted that the persons supporting legalizing same -sex “marriage” in Minnesota are former priests.
We welcome this coherent position and hope that these individuals are presently in secular / atheists groups.
We encourage other like- minded pastors and priests who are still in Christian churches to follow this coherent example and leave as they are really functional atheists who belong in atheist / secular groups.
We thank these former priests for leading the way in coherence in this matter.

Saying it is time to eliminate language that discriminates against a good number of citizens, more than 80 former Catholic priests are coming together in support of legalizing same-sex marriage in Minnesota.
A total of 82 priests, who together have spent 1,026 years in service to the Catholic Church, have formed the Former Priests for Marriage Equality.
In a statement, the group said it supports revising state statutes to grant same-sex couples all the rights and duties awarded to a man and woman entering into a marriage contract in the state.
“State law should allow every individual to exercise the right to marry the person that he or she loves,” the group asserted.
The priests issued a call to “all people of good will” to support the law, and urged lawmakers in both chambers to address the issue in a timely manner.
Below is a full list of the former priests involved in the organization:
