Editor's Note: A couple people contacted me direcly yesterday, suggesting that by simply putting a headline and link up to a blog entry about the St. Paul-Minneapolis archdiocese's outreach to parishes to combat same-sex marriage legislation in Minnesota I made what was a blog entry with a very strong point of view seem like a report of mere facts. These readers were right in their criticism. I will be more careful about labaelling opinion, editorials and commentary (including blogs) as such. I should also mention that just because I link to someone else's opinion, editorial or commentary does not mean that I agree with it. Thanks for the input.
