"The day before he began his new post last April, Dolan came out swinging, ready to fight against marriage equality, saying, “You can bet I will be active and present and, I hope, articulate in this position.” Dolan has referred to gay marriage as a “detriment to civilization.” He has also said  he will challenge any suggestion that Catholics are unenlightened because they oppose gay marriage.
Calling it “surprising,” the New York Times reports, “The bishops also signaled that their conference will move in a decidedly conservative direction in their choice of a vice president. They elected Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, who is chairman of the bishops committee on marriage and an outspoken opponent of same-sex marriage. The runner-up for vice president was Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Denver, also a strong theological and political conservative."~~Catholic Bishops Elections Today Signal Active Anti-Gay Move | The New Civil Rights Movement
