(MCC) -- Michigan's Catholic bishops today released a joint statement through the Michigan Catholic Conference responding to the United States Supreme Court decision in the Obergefell v. Hodges case that redefines the institution of marriage in this country. Michigan Catholic Conference is the official public policy voice of the Catholic Church in this state.

Statement from Michigan's Catholic Bishops:

Today’s decision from the U.S. Supreme Court to redefine marriage represents a profound legal turning point in the contemporary and cultural understanding of spouses and family. We continue to teach that every human person deserves respect and compassion. The experience of same-sex attraction is a reality that calls for attention, sensitivity and pastoral care. While every person is called to love and deserves to be loved, today’s momentous decision will not change the truth of the Church’s teaching on marriage.

On this specific issue, our Holy Father reminds us of the Church’s social doctrine, and of our responsibility to care not only for one another, but for all of God’s creation.”
