Zimbabwe: Christian leaders welcome cardinal’s remarks on same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - March 06, 2012

Christian leaders in Zimbabwe are praising Cardinal Keith O’Brien’s criticism of same-sex marriage. Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, the Scottish prelate had called same-sex marriage a “grotesque subversion” and a “great wrong.”

“Gay marriage is biblically, morally, and socially wrong,” said Rev. Godwin Chitsinde of Spoken Word Ministries. “We welcome what Cardinal O'Brien has said.”

“He is like Martin Luther who had a revelation and has been inspired to get the truth,” added Noah Pashapa, leader of Life and Liberty Churches International.
