Statement of Bishop Tobin on Same-Sex Marriage Bill

coatarms“We will continue to vigorously oppose efforts to redefine the institution of marriage in Rhode Island.  Nevertheless, the legislation introduced by Senator Ciccone presents an eminently reasonable approach to this divisive issue.  It advances the discussion in a positive and democratic way, while at the same time safeguarding the rights of all parties.  The citizens of Rhode Island have a right to vote on this crucial issue.”
