|Engaging in politics from the pulpit in violation of its religious tax-exempt status, Maryland Catholic Churches wade into pulpit punditry. The Archdiocese of Baltimore, Maryland is asking Catholic churches to read a letter asking members to take part in an effort to repeal the state's marriage-equality law and add their names to a petition to place the referendum on the November ballot. The union of one man and one woman "has been recognized by government and religion alike because of its unique capactiy to engender life, and to establish our society's most basic family unit of mother, father and child," the letter says. "When Marylanders are asked to decided this issue in November, we fully expect that they they, too, will vote to uphold this unchanging truth about marriage."|
