Catholics to lend Mormons support

 Bishop William Weigand, head of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento, Calif., and former bishop of the Dioceses of Salt Lake City, lent his support to the LDS Church in a statement Friday.

 Catholics stand in solidarity with our Mormon brothers and sisters in support of traditional marriage — the union of one man and one  woman — that has been the major building block of Western civilization for millennia,” Weigand said in the statement.

 “The ProtectMarriage coalition, which led the successful campaign to pass Proposition 8, was an historic alliance of people from every faith and ethnicity. LDS were included — but so were Catholics and Jews, Evangelicals and Orthodox, African-Americans and Latinos, Asians and Anglos.”
