11. The Cardinal
Is making a statement about civil matters not religious matters.

Canada is a multicultural country not a melting pot. He is saying that Catholics in Canada have different rules to follow than those in England.

It is not his place.

As for the reaction to the Archbishop, I suppose that they are saying with their statements that bypassing the courts and going to arbitration should now also be outlawed.

I would like to hear more from the Archbishop on just what he is saying before I jump to conclusions.

England is not France. The laws, and their interpretations, in England change with society.
