Bishop Tobin: "another reason to pray for forgiveness..."

Earlier this week, [Rhode Island] Attorney General Patrick Lynch issued a non-binding opinion saying that he sees nothing in Rhode Island law preventing the state from recognizing same-sex unions performed in Massachusetts.

In a written statement, Bishop Thomas Tobin says Lynch's thinking has been influenced by the "relentless gay agenda."

The Catholic Bishop of Providence says it's ironic Lynch's decision was announced on Ash Wednesday, which starts a traditional period of repentance and prayer. Tobin calls the decision another reason to pray for forgiveness.
