  • In 2015, Bishop Malone ordered a parish in his diocese to take down a sign outside its church that read “Jesus had 2 Dads and He turned out just fine.” Malone immediately told the priest to take the sign down because it had the potential to be “misunderstood and even perceived in a heretical way.” (WKBW)

  • Bishop Malone called on Catholics to oppose a 2016 assisted suicide bill in New York state in a YouTube video he made. The video was sent to all the parishes and schools in the Buffalo diocese. In the video, Malone said “Proponents of this legislation call it ‘Dying with Dignity,’ but the Catholic Church hardly considers it ‘dignified’ to go against God’s plan and choose the time and method of one’s death.” (Church Militant)
