The Bishops object, and we're reminded of the question of Marquette U's 'partner bennies'.
Recognizing “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” as grounds for non-discrimination in new federal housing regulations could require faith-based groups to violate their religious beliefs, warned the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) last week.
...the regulations could “force” faith-based organizations to violate their religious beliefs by requiring – as a condition for HUD funds – that they make housing available to homosexual or unmarried couples...
So. The USCCB has a problem with making housing available to 'homosexual or unmarried couples'? Not precisely:
“By this, we do not mean that any person should be denied housing,” the attorneys stressed. “Making decisions about shared housing, however, is another matter.”
“Particularly here, faith-based and other organizations should retain the freedom they have always had to make housing placements in a manner consistent with their religious beliefs, including when it concerns a cohabiting couple, be it an unmarried heterosexual couple or a homosexual couple.”Marquette University will facilitate that co-habitation, of course, with "partner" health insurance.
So which "faith tradition" does Marquette claim?
