QUOTE TO NOTE: Catholic Progressives Need to Speak Up

February 5, 2012

Sometimes the important part of a news story is simply a single quotation or two.¬† When that’s the case, we will share those quotes with you through this feature, “QUOTE TO NOTE.”

From a Kensington.Patch.com article on marriage equality in Maryland entitled “O’Malley’s same-sex marriage bill to provide more religious protections” comes this quote which serves as a reminder that¬† Catholic progressives need to speak up to their civil and church leaders:

” ‘I’m getting some people that are calling me to say they don’t support it, and they’re coming from churches, mainly the Catholic Church,’ said Delegate James W. Hubbard (D-Prince George’s County), a bill supporter and member of the Health and Government Operations Committee and chair of the Public Health and Long-Term Care subcommittee.

” ‘I listen to everybody, and I’ve been here 20 years. Those who really get wound up on these things are the ones who call. The people who support these things don’t call,’ he said.”

–Francis DeBernardo, New Ways Ministry
