Skeptic News: Vatican Supports Homophobia of French Bishops

From: Advocate.com

The Vatican declared its support for a day of prayer against marriage equality organized by bishops in the French Catholic Church.

Thousands lined up for the antigay prayer on Wednesday, which proclaimed children can only thrive with the benefit of a mother and father. The prayer was a response to president Francois Hollande voicing support for same-sex marriage.

The Vatican says the French bishops were right to take action: “I believe preserving [heterosexual marriage], which is cultural — and for us also religious — is a real challenge that we have to take up in every corner of our planet,” Bishop Vincenzo Paglia told Vatican Radio.

The Catholic church also unsuccessfully campaigned to stop the Scottish Parliament implementing plans that could make equal marriage a reality by 2015 in Scotland.

It’s time that those opposed to equal marriage realised that they have no place imposing their morality and ethics on others.

    ‘imposing their morality and ethics on others’

    Morality and ethics are just grand sounding words that religions use to attempt to imbue their list of rules with some importance.

    The catholics have changed their rule book continually over the centuries but some are still derived from an out of date book written for a different culture. To survive they will change their rules again but the process is slow and in the meantime they won’t care about the distress, hardship and deaths caused by their intransigence.
