Support Archbishop Cordileone in San Francisco

Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone of San Francisco has been an outspoken defender of the Catholic belief that marriage should be between one man and one woman. His comments are often considered "controversial," and 100 of his critics recently invested in a full-page ad in the San Francisco Chronicle asking Pope Francis to replace Archbishop Cordileone with someone more accepting of non-Catholic teaching regarding human sexuality. 

What supposedly "controversial" comment did Cordileone make to spur on this attack? He simply proposed that Catholic school teachers  should stick to the Catholic teaching about human sexuality.

Archbishop Cordileone rightfully believes that Catholic school teachers should stick to Catholic doctrine in Catholic schools. Despite this, 100 so-called "Catholic leaders" want him to be punished for upholding Catholic teaching.  

In this petition, we ask the Pope's representative in the United States to let him know that the "100 Catholic Leaders" in San Francisco do not speak for all of us

We are ordinary people of all walks of life, all religious backgrounds, and all over the world. We value the Archbishop's moral leadership. Please keep him in San Francisco.

Petition to: Pope Francis

His Excellency, the Most Reverend Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States:

We respectfully request that you convey the following information to the Holy Father.

1. The "100 Catholic leaders" who are petitioning against Archbishop Cordileone are working with an expensive but disreputable public relations firm in the San Francisco Bay area. This firm's past activities include defending the Chevron Corporation against the interests of ordinary people and the City of Richmond have been well-documented in the secular media.

2. The identity of the people paying for these services has not been revealed to the public. 

3. Archbishop Cordileone is greatly loved by people from all walks of life, and all religious backgrounds, inside and outside the Archdiocese of San Francisco.

We make no claim to be "Catholic leaders." We are ordinary people, united in our love and admiration for Archbishop Cordileone. We appreciate his clear and loving expression of the Church's teachings on the dignity of marriage and the sanctity of human life. 

We respectfully ask the Holy Father for a statement in support of the Archbishop of San Francisco. All of us consider ourselves blessed by his presence and his leadership.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
