'No' to 'same-sex marriage'

Scottish cardinal ends dialogue with government over 'gay marriage'

Cardinal Keith P. O'Brien has broken off direct talks with the Scottish government in protest over their decision to back "same-sex marriage," this Catholic News Agency story reports.

The cardinal's actions follow the Scottish government's move last month to legislate for "same-sex marriage," despite nearly two-thirds of those who responded to their official consultation being against the initiative. In total, 64 per cent of the 77,508 who replied said they did not want marriage redefined.

In June, leading Scottish lawyer Aidan O'Neill warned that "same-sex marriage" legislation will radically undermine religious liberty in Scotland.
