<p>[<em>More in the cross-post on the MRC's <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/matthew-balan/2014/09/15/cbs-hypes-progres…; target="_blank">NewsBusters blog</a>.</em>]</p><p>On the 15 September 2014 edition of <em>CBS This Morning</em>, Don Dahler played up how Pope Francis presiding at the wedding of 20 couples in St. Peter's Basilica is "yet another example of just how progressive [he] has been." Dahler zeroed in on how "according to the Church, some of these couples are technically living in sin. Many have been living together prior to getting married, which is forbidden in Catholicism. Some even have children."<br /><br />The correspondent failed to mention, however, that the Pope use part of his sermon during the wedding to defend the Church's longstanding teaching that marriage is between one man and one woman:<br /><br />...This is what marriage is all about: man and woman walking together, wherein the husband helps his wife to become ever more a woman, and wherein the woman has the task of helping her husband to become ever more a man. Here we see the reciprocity of differences. The path is not always a smooth one, free of disagreements, otherwise it would not be human. It is a demanding journey, at times difficult, and at times turbulent, but such is life! Marriage is a symbol of life, real life: it is not "fiction"!</p>
