Tony Blair bucks bishops, backs same-sex marriage
CWN - March 12, 2012
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who entered the Catholic Church after retiring from public office, has broken with the Church by indicating that he “strongly supports” a bid for legal recognition of same-sex marriage.
Blair gave his approval to a plan that has backing from the current prime minister, David Cameron. The Catholic bishops of Great Britain have opposed the measure.
