The Roman Catholic Church opposes the legislation on religious grounds — and more practical ones. The Rev. Bernard Healey told lawmakers that the Providence Diocese is concerned Catholic schools and charitable organizations could be forced to change their employee benefit policies if compelled to recognize the same-sex spouses of employees.
“We are here to defend and support the longstanding definition of marriage… as the exclusive and lasting relationship of a man and a woman,” Healey said. “Using the law to alter or redefine marriage is an injustice to those who have embraced this way of life.”
Now first off, I’ve seen Healey. He’s a rotund fellow. Secondly – it is not an injustice to expect you to cover the same sex partner. An injustice is a red hot poker up your ass Healey. Know the fucking difference.
