Bishop of Sioux City diocese disagrees with Supreme Court ruling

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

The bishop of the Sioux City Catholic Diocese says he's disappointed in Wednesday's ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Bishop R. Walker Nickless says the high court failed to uphold the dignity of marriage in both cases.

Nickless says if the rulings stand, the Court's, quote "implicit repudiation of the role of government to regulate the institution of marriage for the sake of children's well-being (and eventual moral health as citizens) will have long-lasting, deleterious effects on our already tattered social fabric."
