Archbishop warns against attempts to 'redefine nature' by accepting same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - March 26, 2012

Archbishop Mario Conti of Glasgow, Scotland has warned against the bid to “redefine nature” and “recreate society”

The drive for acceptance of gay marriage, the archbishop said, is based upon a willingness to “redefine marriage without any reference to children, or to the natural law written on the heart of mankind, putting the claim of ‘equality and diversity’ on a higher level than faith and reason.” The measure would lead society “further into ethical confusion and moral disintegration,” he said.

Archbishop Conti decried the tone of the debate on same-sex marriage, saying that “we are witnessing the transformation of tolerance into a kind of tyranny in which religious views are the only ones which seem unworthy of respect and acceptance.”
