The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights denounced the January 28 passage of a “domestic partners” measure by the Boston City Council, calling it “an attack on the family, on religious freedom rights, and on the pockets of the taxpayers.”

Massachusetts Chapter Executive Director C. Joseph Doyle said, “The so-called Family Protection Act is a destructive and arbitrary redefmition of the family on behalf of a special interest. The City Council has chosen to promote the homosexual agenda at public expense. Taxpayers, unfairly and in violation of their religious freedom rights, will be forced to subsidize the homosexual lifestyle. This is not about human rights or family protection,” Doyle went on, “but about ideology and empowerment.”

Doyle called the move a precursor to codifying homosexual marriages and urged Mayor Flynn “to veto this ill-conceived ordinance.”
