Bishop Cordileone: Perfect Man for the Job

Bishop Salvatore Cordileone of Oakland has been appointed chairman of the USCCB's Ad Hoc Committee for the Defense of Marriage.

His Excellency was quoted in CNA:

'Marriage and the family are the essential coordinates for society. How well we as a society protect and promote marriage and the family is the measure of how well we stand for the inviolable dignity and good of every individual in our society, without exception'....

During his time as the Bishop of Oakland he has worked to preserve the traditional definition of marriage. His work has been high profile because of the adoption of Proposition 8—the successful ballot initiative that defined marriage as being between one man and one woman—and subsequent legal efforts to overturn it.

'The consequences for our future – especially that of our nation’s children – cannot be greater and must not be ignored.'”

What a great shepherd! Here is His Excellency in the "Marriage Matters to Kids" video:
