UK: Gay marriage will curdle milk, frighten horses, says Catholic Archbish
The most influential Catholic in England and Wales has warned that same-sex marriages would be a “profoundly radical step” that would threaten the true meaning of matrimony, it has been reported.
Plans to extend marriage to same-sex couples would strip the union of its “distinctive nature” and reduce it to just the commitment of the two people involved, without recognising the intention of procreation and the education of children, the Archbishop of Westminster, the Most Reverend Vincent Nichols, will say.
The warning is part of a letter seen by the Daily Telegraph which is due to be read from the pulpit in 2,500 churches during Mass this Sunday.
This is “the most influential Catholic in England and Wales?” Then we have nothing to fear.
