New Zealand bishop flails away at marriage equality

From his palace, Roman Catholic Archbishop John Dew of Wellington, New Zealand said:
John Dew
We find it bizarre that what has been discarded is an understanding of marriage that has its origin in human nature and is common to every culture.
Is that a royal "we?" These men are now completely adrift without the hierarchy's (utterly nonsensical) talking points. "Discarded?" What I find bizarre  is the unhealthy obsession over this issue by people who have no stake in the outcome.

The Catholic Church's authority on this matter is limited. The only decision that they get to make is whether or not they will recognize and solemnize such marriages. That's it. The sheer arrogance of these celibate men seems endless.
