Can the church ever reconcile with gay unions?


The Supreme Court ruling that DOMA is unconstitutional and in violation  of the Equal Protection clause will certainly stir wider efforts to legalize same-sex marriage throughout the country.  The movement in this direction seems inevitable and unstoppable. I don’t think it’s inconceivable that 20 years from now same-sex marriages will be almost universally accepted in civil society. The heavy support of young people, including young Catholics, according to recent polls, indicates the direction we’re moving in.
