AZ’s Catholic Bishop Blows It

January 25, 2010

The bishop in charge of most Arizona Catholic churches is a moron about marriage.

Catholic church weddings are down to only 1300 last year, from 1800 the year prior. So if you’re the bishop leading the counties of Maricopa, Yavapai, Coconino and Mohave what do you do to increase the number of couples getting married in the church instead of choosing a civil service at the court house or simple cohabitation?

How to boost church marriages? If you’re Bishop Olmstead you decide to make it harder to get married in the church. Yep, harder.

Nine months of marriage preparation classes instead of six months. More haranguing about gay marriage being evil. A course about what the church calls “Natural Family Planning” and what others call “parenthood”.

Brilliant.
