Two Catholic lawmakers: Faith led to gay marriage support.
Today's Boston Globe reports on yesterday's Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry ceremony at the Massachusetts State House, where the same-sex marriage advocacy organization honored three individuals and one religious organization for their efforts on behalf of same-sex couples. Strangely, although the Globe included fascinating interviews with Roman Catholic legislators Marie P. St. Fleur and Marian Walsh, who described how their faith informed their decision to support gay marriage rights, and although the article also mentioned awards given to Episcopal Bishop M. Thomas Shaw and Rabbi Daniel Judson, reporter Michael Paulson neglected to mention that the Unitarian Universalist Association received the "Peace and Justice Award." Hey!
