Scotland: prelate laments ‘liberal agenda’ on same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - July 26, 2012

The newly-appointed archbishop of Glasgow has spoken out against same-sex marriage in an interview with Vatican Radio.

“We have to constantly repropose a Christian vision of the dignity of the person, of the family, of the human project as a whole, and it isn’t easy,” said Archbishop Philip Tartaglia. “It’s all crystallizing these days around the subject of same-sex marriage, and this is expressing the whole crisis in the relationship of the Church to society.”

“There are challenges which are associated with our self-presentation to the political class and to the elite class, which if you like has adopted almost entirely and uncritically the whole liberal agenda,” he added.

A native of Glasgow—Scotland’s largest city—the 61-year-old prelate was ordained to the priesthood in 1975, appointed bishop of Paisley in 2005, the appointed archbishop of Glasgow on July 24.
