Priest at Odds with His Church over Gay Marriage

Hosted by

In California next month, voters will be asked to overturn the State Supreme Court's ruling that gays and lesbians have the constitutional right to be married. Proposition 8 would establish that marriage can only occur between a man and a woman. The Roman Catholic Church is supporting the measure, and has effectively fired Father Geoffrey Farrow who defied church teaching in a sermon last week in the inland city of Fresno. Why did he defy the Church's teachings?
