In the aftermath of the Supreme Court legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the National Catholic Reporter has taken it upon itself to honor two homosexuals from Canada who have lived together for 33 years, exchanged vows in Canada, and are active in a Catholic Church.

Michael Hichborn of the Lepanto Institute responds to that news.

"They give them the award of ‘Persons of the Year’ and then they actually say in their article: 'NCR is already on record advocating for church personnel policies that ensure that employees can enter into legal civil marriages without fear of losing their jobs.'"

On both counts, the newspaper is advocating against church teachings, Hichborn explains.

"This isn't just contrary to the faith of the church; this is an actual scandal advocating for the commission of sin itself living with the church,” he tells OneNewsNow. “This is not only abominable to the faith, it is abominable to the faithful, it is an assault on the authority of the church – and the National Catholic Reporter should be completely and totally banned from all official Catholic functions."

He adds that, not surprisingly, the paper and the editorial aren’t welcomed by the majority of the faithful.
