Scottish churches condemn gay marriage.



In another humiliating move by the Roman Catholic Church, priests today denounced Scottish government plans to introduce gay marriage.

The priests declared today "National Marriage Sunday" and enforced their view that marriage is specifically a union between a man and a woman. In a letter reading during services throughout Scotland priests said, "pray for our elected leaders, invoking the Holy Spirit on them, that they may be moved to safeguard marriage as it has always been understood, for the good of Scotland and of our society".

The Equality Network said that, "The letter is part of a wider anti-gay agenda"

Clearly the Church is showing just how out of touch, dated and discriminatory it is towards sections of our society. If gay people want to marry and share the same rights as heterosexual unions, then so be it.
