Pope Breaks Taboos In Historic Marriage Ceremonies

Pope Francis married a single mother, those who’ve been married before, and those who’ve lived “in sin” at a Vatican ceremony Sunday.

The decision earlier this week from a federal appeals court striking down gay marriage bans is more important for who issued it than for what it said.

The Virginia Family Foundation announced a “40 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance,” to fight back against same-sex marriage, but the only thing missing is the “fasting” part.
