WINONA, Minn. — Minnesota's Roman Catholic bishops are launching a new effort against same-sex marriage, with a DVD being mailed to parishioners.
Winona Bishop John Quinn writes briefly in the new issue of the diocese's newspaper that traditional marriage is under attack. He asks Catholics to contact their state legislators.
Winona Diocese spokeswoman Rose Hammes tells the Winona Daily News the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis is coordinating the DVD distribution.
A spokesman for the archdiocese did not return two messages today.
The state campaign coincides with a U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops effort called "Marriage: Unique for a Reason," which includes a 12-minute video.
Gay rights advocate Cindy Killion says the campaign is insulting to homosexuals. She calls gay marriage an issue of equal rights.
