Australian Bishop Protests Census Recognition of SSM


Via Catholic Culture:

An Australian Catholic bishop has decried the decision of national census officials to count some homosexual couples as “married,” despite the fact that same-sex marriages are not legally recognized in Australia.

... Marriage, the bishop argued, “is a legally defined reality that can be objectively determined.” Since marriage is defined in Australia as a union between a man and a woman, the census results will deliberately distort that objective reality, he said.
