“Catholic” Bill Dodd is running for a seat in the California Assembly representing the 4th District which includes Napa County where I live. Dodd switched parties in 2012, becoming a Democrat, and citing that the reason was the Republican’s stance on gay marriage: “He says the tipping point in his decision to switch parties was the debate over gay marriage and marriage equality;” (Read more here: http://www.sacbee.com/2014/04/14/6321248/endorsements-2014-krovoza-dodd.html) Just this year, he also spoke about his support for abortion: “I’ve supported women’s rights, particularly the right to choose. I have consistently supported marriage equality and equality for everybody…It’s these kind of values that absolutely make me a Democrat and why I switched;” (Read more here: http://www.davisvanguard.org/assembly-candidate-bill-dodd-talks-to-the-vanguard) Yet, a stadium, Dodd Stadium, at my Catholic alma-mater is named after Mr. Dodd. While this took place in 2008, before many of Mr. Dodd’s anti-Catholic beliefs were fully known; it is now time for Justin- Siena High School to remove Mr. Dodd’s name from the stadium.
Taken from The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith: “Considerations regarding Proposals to Give Legal Recognition to Unions Between Homosexual Persons.”
“If it is true that all Catholics are obliged to oppose the legal recognition of homosexual unions, Catholic politicians are obliged to do so in a particular way, in keeping with their responsibility as politicians.”
“When legislation in favor of the recognition of homosexual unions is already in force, the Catholic politician must oppose it in the ways that are possible for him and make his opposition known; it is his duty to witness to the truth.”
