Bishop Johnston statement on Mercy's decision to offer same-sex benefits

"Recognizing God's plan for marriage is not a matter of 'the Church's position,' as Mercy characterized it, but rather, one of God's own Word," Johnston said. "And while the statement does not specify the 'government regulations' Mercy claims to require this change, no believing Christian worthy of the name should violate God's law because of 'regulations.' Our ancestors refused to abandon the faith even when subjected to the cruelty and torture of the Roman Empire, but in our age unspecified 'regulations,' government funds, and fear of public ridicule is sufficient in order to secure the compliance of some."
