Catholic Church Suddenly Supports Civil Unions
For the first time ever, the Roman Catholic church is endorsing civil unions, in the second historic reversal in only two weeks.

The Roman Catholic church of New Hampshire suddenly endorsed civil unions on 19 March 2012, just 48 hours before a state legislature vote that has been pending for two years. That vote must be taken by tomorrow, or else the proposed legislation will die altogether. In an equally surprising move, on 4 March, the Roman Catholic church of Maine ceased all external opposition to this year's full marriage equality ballot campaign in Maine.

Historically, Roman Catholic officials have opposed virtually every regulation, policy, and law proposed to protect LGBT people nationwide, including all proposals for civil unions. However, faced with the choice of either retaining New Hampshire's full marriage law which was signed on 3 June 2009, or else repealing it and replacing it with civil unions instead, church officials decided - for the first time ever - to endorse civil unions for LGBT people.
