Catholic priests voice same-sex marriage fears

More than 1,000 Roman Catholic priests have signed a letter voicing fears that same-sex marriage legislation will restrict religious freedoms.

The letter, in the Daily Telegraph, says a law change would “severely restrict” Catholics’ ability to “teach the truth about marriage in schools”.


The Bishop of Portsmouth, the Rt Rev Philip Egan, told the Telegraph: “I am very anxious that when we are preaching in Church or teaching in our Catholic schools or witnessing to the Christian faith of what marriage is that we are not going to be able to do it, that we could be arrested for being bigots or homophobes.”

You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth!

  1. All right, Reverend. Please, tell me the truth about marriage. My understanding — at least in this day and age — is that it’s the process by which two people air up, share living expenses, and eventually stop having sex with each other.

  2. Priest are married to god. The catholic god is masculine. It follows then that priests are already engaged in same sex marriage. And the only way they can consummate this marriage by earthly means is via young boys.
