We got something in common! (To be fair, I'm fascinated by Catholicism on many levels, but this one is a true bond.)
According to Janet I. Tu of the Seattle Times, "Sixteen months after the gay-marriage case was argued before the state Supreme Court, the Seattle Roman Catholic Archdiocese filed a friend-of-the-court brief — which the court promptly rejected because it was late."
Yes, it was LATE. Procastinators of the world, unite! Sometime. Next week, maybe?
