Marriage and religious liberty talk in Springfield

San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, will speak on marriage and religious liberty in America Nov. 19 at St. Raymond of Peñafort Church, 8750 Pohick Rd., Springfield, at 7:30 p.m.

Since taking the helm of the archdiocese, he has been under constant public attack for his strong and outspoken defense of the church's moral teachings, especially with regard to same-sex attraction and same-sex marriage. In June he was the subject of a nationally publicized letter from 78 politicians and activists, including California's lieutenant governor and the mayor of San Francisco, criticizing his defense of marriage.
