"Today, many evil forces have set their sights on the dissolution of marriage and the debasing of family life. Sodomy, abortion, contraception, pornography, the redefinition of marriage, and the denial of objective truth are just some of the forces threatening the stability of our civilization. The source of these machinations is none other than the Father of Lies. Satan knows all too well the value that the family contributes to the fabric of a good solid society, as well as the future of God's work on earth."

-- John Nienstedt, the notoriously anti-gay archbishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota, revealing the depth of his homophobic animus in an op-ed for Legatus Magazine. Nienstedt is clearly still smarting about the fact that over his strenuous objections, the state of Minnesota now allows all loving and committed couples to marry, regardless of sexual orientation.
