Law Professor Charles Reid, of St, Thomas University, has a post up at Huffington Post that shares some of the concerns I raised to Archbishop Vigneron's comments about Catholics who support same-sex marriage in civil laws refraining from Communion. Reid does not focus on the issue of communion per se, but on the broader issue, and more important issue, of how Catholic views on marriage have always differed from our civil legal establishment in the U.S. Good stuff.
