Does Bill Donahue favor civil unions? (Catholic League)


#1

According to a February 27 Chronicle story, conservative leaders are lowering their expectations. David Horowitz of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture told the paper, “as far as adults are concerned, there is no culture war anymore.” Horowitz said, though, that conservatives can make an argument “about process” – making sure mayors like Gavin Newsom cannot take extralegal steps, for instance. William Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, said the Chronicle, supports President Bush’s proposed amendment to ban homosexual marriage; but, the article said that Donohue does not think it will “prevent same-sex civil unions, which he now supports,” but merely keep homosexual couples from claiming the status of marriage.

IF this is true, I would like to know Bill Donahue’s side of it.

I suggest you just ask him. Send the link to the Catholic League along with your question and I’m sure you’ll get a factual reply. Anything here will just be conjecture and speculation.

That’s a good idea, but he doesn’t have an e-mail. I could call or write, though.
