On the other hand, there's the view of gay Roman Catholic priest/theologian James Alison, whose interview on some of the same issues is at dot commonweal here:

And in the Church of England, today the new Dean of historic St. Paul's cathedral announced his support for marriage equality. See here:

To me, an atheist libertarian, it makes no difference whatever what the RC church thinks about marriage or who is entitled to a church wedding.

The only problem is that the State recognizes heterosexual marriage. That fact burdens the liberty of singles. Adding gays to the privileged franchise only adds to the burden.

What we need to do is this: allow the RC church to recognize and bless whatever it wants and remove from gummint the right to recognize marriage of anyone.
