To be delivered to: Archbishop Timothy Dolan, President, US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Bishop Salvatore Cordileone, Bishop of Oakland Diocese, California, and President Barack Obama
Archbishop Timothy Dolan (New York City) President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued on September 20, 2011 an official plea to President Obama to "push the reset button on your Administration‟s approach to DOMA." (Defense of Marriage Act). The Archbishop speaks on behalf of the US Bishops in requesting the President's defense of DOMA instead of moving to declare it as unconstitutional.
We the undersigned practicing Catholics wish to support President Obama with all due respect to our bishops and the "millions of citizens" Archbishop Dolan invokes as supporting him.
