"Because civil unions promote an unacceptable lifestyle, undermine the faith of the Church on holy matrimony, and cause scandal and confusion, Catholics may not participate in civil unions. To do so is a very grave violation of the moral law and, thus, seriously sinful. A civil union can never be accepted as a legitimate alternative to matrimony."

-- Rhode Island Bishop Thomas Tobin warning the state's Catholics that they can't get a civil union like a common homosexual

Hierarchy is a pain in the patoot. Whether church or government if one does not go through them (and pay the toll) one is not permitted to do it. Whatever it is
If you want to do Sex you need to pay the toll twice, once to each toll collector. What a pile of male cow poo!
