Bishop Tobin Issues Statement on Supreme Court Same-Sex Marriage Deliberations

Wednesday, March 27, 2013


The Most Rev. Thomas J. Tobin, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence, released the following statement today:

“In light of the historic deliberations of the U.S. Supreme Court on same-sex marriage, it would be appropriate for the General Assembly of Rhode Island to defer any action on this critical issue for the time being. Any legislative action that is taken now could very well be rendered completely null and void by the decision of the Supreme Court expected this June. It is likely that the Supreme Court will decide this matter for us, one way or another. Let’s wait to see what the highest court of the land says about this issue which is so very important to many Rhode Islanders.”
