(RNS) In the wake of historic victories for gay rights supporters in last month's elections, a pair of USA Today/Gallup Polls find growing acceptance among Americans toward gay men and lesbians -- and soaring optimism among gay Americans that issues involving homosexuality will one day no longer divide the nation. By Susan Page/USA Today.

    American’s opinions may be changing fast, but God’s truth is unchanging. Thank God for the Catholic Church.

  • (Rev.) James Dallen, S.T.D.

    This will not be the first time that the Church has been on the wrong side of history and has had to “develop” its teachings. I do not expect the Church to change its position on sacramental marriage, even though procreation is no longer regarded as the primary purpose of marriage. I do think it will eventually re-evaluate its views on the morality of same-sex unions but without admitting the spouses to the sacrament.
