    Pretty simple:

    Is the command from the Bishop causing you to sin? If it is, then resist it. If not, and meeting it is possible, then you do it, even if you don’t like it.

    As far as anti-discrimination laws regarding homosexuals is concerned, this reader may want consider that such a law could prevent a Catholic entity from refusing to hire or from firing a homosexual particularly one who is in a visible position with children, ie, Catholic school. Thus, such a law could inhibit the Catholic entity’s religious freedom. So, he may want to heed his bishop’s guidance here.

    He should read the particulars of the proposed law and his bishop’s explanation for opposition to the proposed law.
