Archbishop of Westminster attacks gay marriage plan

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-20840531


The archbishop has likened gay relationships to "profound friendships"

The Roman Catholic Church's leader in England and Wales says government plans for gay marriage are a "shambles".

Archbishop of Westminster Vincent Nichols told the BBC that the government had no mandate to push through same-sex marriage laws.

And in his Christmas Eve sermon he said that marriage between men and women shares in "the creative love of God".

The government plans to allow gay marriage in England and Wales but says any bodies against it could opt out.

1. I think even he knows how ignorant and stupid his position is... At least I hope he does

Even damn majority of Tories understand that this is a Human Rights issue and is not open for negotiation.
