LOUISVILLE — Erin Brock says she’s prepared to fight to have her love legally recognized by the state of Indiana.
Brock and her financé Melissa Love share a home and children in Jeffersonville and are one of four same-sex couples from southern Indiana suing Indiana Gov. Mike Pence in federal court to allow them to legally marry or to have their marriages in other states recognized by Indiana.
“If I had the chance to talk to the governor, I would say, ‘It’s about love,’” Brock said. “‘And, I get that there are politics that go on, but I don’t care. I don’t care about that. I care about the fact that I want to love someone for the rest of my life.”
While Brock and Love have considered a destination wedding for the opportunity to enjoy their nuptials, the women are willing to delay plans and put up a fight for their right to be wed in their hometown in the company of friends and families.

1. The catlick church fights back
Green Bay Bishop issues letter.
The Church is not a political organism, but as you hopefully have learned in the US Bishops Faithful Citizenship material (which we have made widely available to you in the parishes, in the Compass and on-line), the Church has the responsibility to speak out regarding moral issues, especially on those issues that impact the “common good” and the “dignity of the human person.”
These are areas that are “intrinsically evil” and cannot be supported by anyone who is a believer in God or the common good or the dignity of the human person.
3. embryonic stem cell research
4. human cloning
5. homosexual “marriage”
These are intrinsically evil. “A well-formed Christian conscience does not permit one to vote for a political program that contradicts fundamental contents of faith and morals.” Intrinsically evil actions are those which have an evil object. In other words, an act is evil by its very nature and to choose an action of this type puts one in grave moral danger.
NOTE THE PUNCTUATION IS IN THE ORIGINAL

3. According to the guys in collars
Most of those stories are untrue these stories are made by greedy criminals attempting to extort $$$$ from the church reserves meant to help the poor and hungry.
Or so says a few cardinals and their followers. The cardinals are also saying they are being forced to protect the money of the poor by putting their flocks into chapter 11 bankruptcy
