The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington had no choice but to end its foster care program over the city’s gay-marriage law (“D.C. gay-marriage law spurs archdiocese to end foster care,” Page I, Thursday).

Civil law does not trump the moral law. The moral law was set up by God, our creator, and is promulgated by leaders in our churches and other houses of worship. If a civil law contradicts the moral law, then it is null and void. By voice vote we don’t change the moral law on murder, stealing, lying, etc.

The U.S. Constitution talks about God-given rights that legislators cannot take away. We went to war over the dictatorships of Hitler and Mussolini. We knew the laws and actions of those men were evil and must be resisted. All of us know there are moral laws based on the nature of humankind and then there are laws made by men that go against the moral law.
