(CNSNews.com) - Pope Benedict XVI has named Bishop Salvatore J. Cordileone, who chairs the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Subcommittee on the Defense and Promotion of Marriage, the new archbishop of San Francisco, a city that is one of the world’s leading centers of gay activism.
As chair of the bishops’ panel on marriage, Cordileone has repeatedly spoken out in unambiguous terms against the legalization of same-sex marriage or civil unions, and has been a sharp critic of the Obama administration’s efforts to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act and to equate resistance to the gay-rights agenda as a form of discrimination akin to racism.
