Scottish bishops warn government on same-sex marriage

October 26, 2011

Bishop Philip Tartaglia of Paisley has met with Scottish government leaders to explain the concerns of the Catholic Church about a proposal to approve same-sex marriage.

Church leaders in Scotland have promised vigorous opposition to the proposal, on which the government is currently inviting public comment. Archbishop Mario Conti of Glasgow warned that the legal recognition of same-sex marriage could put many Christians in an “unlawful” position, since they could not in conscience recognize such unions.
