"How can we rule out that life may have developed elsewhere? Just as we consider earthly creatures as 'a brother' and 'sister,' why should we not talk about an 'extraterrestrial brother'? It would still be part of creation." ~ The Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes, the Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory, assuring Catholics that it's ok to believe in aliens

"I welcome the ruling of the California Supreme Court affirming the fundamental right of all people to marry and establish a family. All children of God should be afforded the same rights under the law, and this decision recognizes that all Californians, regardless of sexual orientation, have equal access to one of our fundamental institutions. This decision gives our church another opportunity to partner with our state to ensure that all families have the support they need to build relationships that strengthen our communities, state and country." - Episcopal Bishop Rt. Rev. Marc Handley Andrus of the diocese of California
