Dolan and Paterson set to clash on same-sex marriage

With N.Y. Gov. David Paterson bent on introducing legislation that will legalize same-sex marriage, the work of newly-installed Archbishop Timothy Dolan begins in haste.

One the eve of his installation yesterday the Archbishop said, "You can bet I would be active and present and, I hope, articulate in this particular position."

The folks here in the Bay Area will soon be receiving a bishop who has been articulate in the issue of same-sex marriage during the campaign on California's Proposition 8: Salvatore Cordileone, presently the auxiliary in San Diego, and slated to be installed as Oakland's new Bishop.

Sometime in the next couple of months, the California Supreme Court is scheduled to rule on the constitutionality of the passage of Proposition 8 which outlawed same-sex marriage.
