The Catholic Church wages war on gay rights

The Catholic Church is campaigning to prevent Gay people having the right to marry

IN A letter read out in 2,500 parish churches across England during Sunday Mass, the English catholic church’s two senior archbishops urges Catholics to do all they can to block the adoption of the right of gay couples to contract civil marriages.

They argued that were such a right to be granted “there would be no recognition of the complementarity of male and female or that marriage is intended for the procreation and education of children.”

For an all male celibate priesthood, shamed around the world for covering up the abuse of children placed in its care, to be so emphatic about the need to fulfill the demands of ‘the natural law’ could be simply a cause for scorn were it not that the lobbying of this immensely powerful hierarchy could easily scare Cameron and legislators to drop the proposal. We have seen these shepherds mobilize their flock to campaign to force women to go through with unwanted pregnancies.

The head of the Catholic Church in Scotland came up with the incredible piece of logic that “No Government has the moral authority to dismantle the universally understood meaning of marriage”. Imagine for a moment that the Government had decided to legalize slavery but assured us that ‘no one will be forced to keep a slave’.

Aside from the fact that slavery was for centuries legal in the realms of Catholic and Anglican monarchs and their churches raised no objection to it, how on earth can the fact that people of the same sex choose to marry cause any harm to people of different sexes getting married? It is plain that what they want to do is to continue unchallenged with spreading misery and oppression because of one’s sexual orientation just as it seeks to force women to go through with unwanted pregnancies.

The churches know that the more suffering there is in this ‘vale of tears’ the more people will turn to the opium of religion to dull their pain and continue pay its pushers handsomely for the job.
