Sen. Frist and Bishop Joseph Kurtz of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops listen to a speaker during the press conference.  Kurtz, Bishop of Knoxville, Tennessee, chairs the Conference's Committee on Marriage and Family.  The Conference issued a statement on marriage on September 9, 2003 which said in part, "What are called 'homosexual unions,' because they do not express ful humna complementarity and because they are inherently non-procreative, cannot be given the status of marriage."
